Encrypting File System RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    We have a serious problem and we need a help.
    Briefly, we have grouped all of our work data in one folder and encrypted it with the fonction "Encrypt contents to secure data" available on Windows XP. That folder was transferred on the USB key. After formatting the hard disk of the machine which was utilised for that operation, we can no longer read or recover any files (works, a lot of business data, etc.) - unfortunately, by ignorance, we have not exported the certficate of encryption. The only thing we have, are 5 certificates located in the folder Crypto/RSA/S-1-5-21....98-1003 who come from a backup of the system which was done a several weeks "before" that fatidic encryption.
    We appreciate a lot any solutions, suggestion, contact with Microsoft partner's, etc.
    Thank you

    Fredo

    P.S. We think that should exist a lot of companies which experienced à same situation and resolved. We can't believe that our Microsoft do not have a solution for that kind of problem, so we are still confident and hope to fix that problem which can have a negative impact on the future of our company.
