Hi guys! I've got this really messy problem on my hand. The problem is, I've got few folders and its contents hidden and encrypted using the standard windows file encryption. I'm the sole user of my computer, but I had to hide and encrypt it as my cousins started to snoop around and they are not so tech savvy. The problem now is, I cant access those files myself using my account, which is an administrative account and even using the administrator account. I recently had to format and re-install my OS due to some problem. Could this be the problem? I need to access those files and its very urgent. I checked out the MS website, no luck to the methods as to wha they have suggested. Is there any method to access MY OWN files?? Please do help out. Note: Those files are only text, so any tools to decrypt these kind of files only?
