Lost FolderBolt Password on a Macintosh PowerBook 170

I have a PowerBook 170 I used in the early nineties. It has System Software 7.1,  8.192 MB of built-in memory and 13.3MB of total memory. I used FolderBolt to password protect several folders and can neither remember the password nor find the original floppy that was used to install FolderBolt. There does not appear to be a FolderBolt extension in the extensions folder but there is a control panel icon for FolderBolt in the Control Panel folder.

Can anyone help me uninstall, circumnavigate or otherwise get past the FolderBolt password protection?

Uninstalling the product will not decrypt the data  and likely will lead to a total loss of data.

I'm not aware of password recovery tools for the Mac that would work with/on folderbolt.
In a way you should try empty password,password, and then try your common passwords:
date of birth, name of spouse, important dates, phone numbers.
