By nimwa
Mar 17, 2006
  1. well i had EFS enabled when runing windowsXP and it encrypted almost all of my things. i copied all my important stuff like videos etc to my external harddrive and i formatted the machine and installed winXP fresh. well the problem is now that i cant run any of those files is there any way i can decrypt it or something? the only thing i get when i rightlick go to properties and select details is a certificate thumbprint.. its like 70GB of videos *cry* when i used to move the files they would lose the encrption thing or whatever but i cant even copy them now.. :(
