Newly Unaccessable Encrypted files in XP pro.
Posted on 2003-10-28
I have some files that were encrypted using the standard (EFS) XP pro encryption. After installing one of MS's massive security patches (5 actually) I can not access the files. I think all of the key files etc are intact, (as is are my profiles) but I can't do anything with the files. Some other programs have had strange quirks dealing with profiles since that security update. Is there some way I can manualy tell Windows where to look for the keys which seem to be ok?
Reading over some of the other similar questions, the thing that seems different is that I THINK I have all of the profile information. I just can't do anything with the files!
