I am running XP sp3 , I received a usb drive and when I plug it in it says EPM Encrypted Disk.

There is a unlock.exe file that when I try to open it wants a password?
The files inside are all EPM files.
Any idea how to open them.
Thanks

The EPM encryption is working as intended. Since the USB drive was encrypted on a different machine (not the one you're using now), you will need to provide the password. You'll have to ask the person who sent you the drive for the password. If it didn't work like that, the system would be worthless. Regards, Joe

That is what I thought but I just wanted verification.
