Folder Encryption?

By Yakob
Jun 10, 2007
  1. OK, after a major problem with my PC i had to re-install XP, BUT it still kept all my files etc... the things that were in my old OS istallation, such as My Documents, i wan't back, BUT when i password protected my account i also "hid" it from access which has hindered it kinda useless atm.

    i will try logging in as Administrator in safe mode and see if i can get it that way...

    XP EFS Reference (encryption)

    HIGHLY recommend you read the MS article first!

    1) it only works on XP/Pro
    2) you need a Recovery Agent
