Hello everyone ..
I hope this is my last resort of finding the right way to get back may files ..
If you guys dont help - I dont think anyone will ..
Lets start from the begining:
I had a directory (folder) on my Hard drive in which I had folders encrypted with XP encryption. I used my account which has Administator rights. (not the default administrator acount)
I connected my laptop (with standard net adapter) and tried to copy the encrypted files to the laptops drive. And I got an error message.
Then is when I discovered that my Encrypted files are no longer accesible by me. I couldnt change or read them. Nothing!
I can not even change the encryption settings (key not trusted)
These files remained out of limit to acount that I was using all along, and who had the ownership rights!
But Ive done nothing wrong to make my files lock for the acout that made them encrypted.
I tried many things ...
- backing up the files, and coping them to another drive.
- backing them up to a FAT32 partition - nothing.
- using default admin acount.
- coping my key to a file, and adding it in console ..
Please note that I didnt format my disk, changed system files, install new operating system .. I even didnt add new users. So the keys could be lost... I thinks they are someplace on the drive,but are they?
Files remain locked ..
(some of the encrypted photos show on the thumbnail and some dont, why?)
If anyone can land a hand ... please do ..
You cant imagine how much this means ..
THANKS IN ADVANCE
