If you find it necessary to remove SafeHouse from your PC, the most important thing to consider is your data. What are you going to do with the files stored within protected volumes? Without the SafeHouse software, you will no longer be able to open your volumes to a Windows drive letter.
It is important to note that removing SafeHouse from your PC does not routinely remove or delete your SafeHouse volume files; provided, that is, that you do not keep your volumes in the SafeHouse programs directory. Volume files are treated similarly to word processing documents, whereby you are allowed to remove or change your word processor without having all your documents deleted in the process.
Please follow the steps below to remove SafeHouse from your PC.
Copy all important files and data contained within SafeHouse encrypted volumes to a normal unencrypted hard drive. This way you will still have access to your files after SafeHouse is removed. This step is only necessary when you will not be re-installing SafeHouse prior to needing access to your protected files.
Run the Remove SafeHouse utility. This can be done either from the Windows Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet, or from the SafeHouse menu group in your Windows Start menu.
If you are having trouble removing SafeHouse from your PC due to the fact that some of the SafeHouse files are missing or damaged, we recommend that you try running the SafeHouse setup utility to let SafeHouse rebuild its files. Once the required files are present, you can then once again try removing SafeHouse and it will likely work.
