Okay its my own fault for not doing this carefully enough I admit that.
I have two partitions both NTFS on my XP desktop.
All my program and file storage is on the second partition. I was testing out File ENcryption and did encrypt a few of the files and folders there while log is an myself (administrator privleges) I was logged into the domain not the machine.
Problems occurred on the main partition that required me to do a format and reinstall. I can't access these files anylonger on the secondary parition! I've tried decrypting them as admin, as myself locally and as myself on the network all of which are admin accounts and it just says sorry Access denined. I figure that the encryption was association with the GUID and even though same accounts different GUID and therefore no access!!!!!
There are no certificates associated with these encrypted files within the folder. Does anyone know how to get around this and regain access to this files?
