“Failed to unlock data vault” error in Kaspersky Total Security

Latest update: January 15, 2021 ID: 15414
 
 
 
 

Cause

  • The System user account does not have permissions on using files. 
  • The data vault is located in the root folder of the system disk. 

Solution

  • Check the permissions of the System user account. If the account has no permissions or some restrictions are set, change the permissions to allow access. See the guide below.
  • If the vault is located in the root folder of the system drive, copy it to any other folder and then connect to Kaspersky Total Security. See the guide below.
