    Reg file to batch remove BLOCK from files /Folder

    Hi I found this, which I added to the registry but the right click option to unblock files / folders hasnt appeared

    any help please

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\unblockfile]@=”Unblock file”[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\unblockfile\command]@=”cmd /c streams -d \”%1\””[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\unblockallthefiles]@=”Unblock the files inside”[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\unblockallthefiles\command]@=”cmd /c streams.exe -d -s \”%1\””

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    @="Unblock file"
    @="cmd /c streams -d \"%1\""
    @="Unblock the files inside"
    @="cmd /c streams.exe -d -s \"%1\""

    This ought to do the trick but make sure to DL from Sysinternals and copy "Streams.exe to %windir%\system32.

    Good enough for me.....when I tried it I got a message that the file I was trying to unlock was not associated with the unblock command, or something similar and was not available for folders

    Are you sure you saved the file as a .reg file ?

    It works just fine for me.
