File Replication Pro and OFM/FAM each have their own uninstallers which can be used to remove the applications in the event that you wish to uninstall the programs.

In the case that the uninstaller is corrupted or files have been deleted and it is not possible to remove the programs with the uninstaller we have provided manual removal instructions.


For a complete removal of FRP the uninstaller should be run, followed by a complete deletion of the folder /FileReplicationPro which in found in the /Program Files (x86) folder.

The above method will remove the 3 Registry entries that FRP creates as well.  If you did not run the uninstaller or cannot run it for some reason the registry entries will remain but have no effect.  They can be removed by searching the registry for the following entries and removing them manually.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services\frp
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services\frp_help
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services\frp_mgmt



The OFM/FAM tool has it's own uninstaller, there is no associated service only the licensing tool and the driver that provides the file unlocking.

Files and folders to remove in the event of a manual removal:

Note that the end portion of the pathname "-version-" will vary with your version.

There are 3 Folders to remove, which may be located in C:\Program Files (x86) or C:\Programs depending on your version of windows.

(C:\Program Files\File Access Manager (FAM) "-version-" (C:\Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data\File Access Manager (FAM) "-version-"
(C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\File Access Manager (FAM)  "-version-"

Delete the driver C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\FAMv4.sys

Registry entries to be found and removed. They will be similar to the following depending one the version you had installed.  Search for the string "File Access Manager" to find them.
