Re: recover encrypted files

You will need the password unless you had configured a Recovery Agent which
would be shown in the advanced properties for the EFS file and have access
to the RA certificate/private key or you have backed up your EFS
certificate/private key used for that EFS file to a password protected .pfx
file that you could import onto that computer. If you can not do that the
file is unrecoverable. It is also a good idea to keep clear text backups of
your EFS files stored in a safe place though I know that does not help you
now. I wish I had better news.
