Encrypted Files...stories, poems, and resumes needing accessed but cant.. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know others have posted with similar issue - encrypted files that cant be accessed.. My guess is as the others were - that somehow I got a virus my security program did not take notice of, and now I cant access those files. That was before I had other issues with my computer which ended up crashing while running windows 8.1. I thn got a copy of the recovery disks, with which I reinstalled the OS and then once running, re-upgraded back to 8.1 from 8.0. Then I reinstlalled my files that I had managed to save on an external harddrive when planning to do a recovery originally before my computer ended up crashing. Following that re uloading of my files from the external dh, I was able to proceed with the windows 10 upgrade after a few faild attempts, as i had also bene trying to do before the crash. But I am still unable to access those encrypted files, both on my computer aswell as on another I tried accessing them from off the external drive. If anyone knows a decryption program and one that does not prompt me for some password I dont have, I would appreciate the advice. Please contact me via my email:  Thanks in advance and hope this finds you all well :)
