Encrypted files - no access
Posted on 2003-03-12
I've played around with file encryption in XP, quite foolish but anyhow...
For some reason I lost access to my own files, which I encrypted while using my domain account. This account is the only one I use.
I have not reinstalled the os, nor have I deleted any certificates.
There is a certificate available, but the fingerprint seems to be different from the one having access to the files, even though it's linked to my domain account.
There's no recovery agent available, and I haven't exported any certificates, so there's no 'backdoor'.
Could someone pls explain how I coult loose access, and if there's any way of getting it back?
