  1. Decrypt File and to gain access


    Hello, recently I upgraded to Windows 10, but I saved a couple of files from Windows 7. It has a yellow lock that signifies that is encrypted. It also says when I try to open it, "You do not have permission to open this file. See the owner of the file or an administrator to obtain permission." I am an admin. I also tried to decrypt through cmd via cipher. It just gave me an error. I'm really not sure what do to right now if anyone can help, thanks!

    :)

  3. Help accessing encrypted files (Error: 0x80071771: The specified file could not be decrypted)

    Hi DesignerJo0314,

    EFS or Encrypting File System on Windows is designed to protect your confidential data from threats or attackers that have access to your computer. Once a file is encrypted, a recovery key or certificate is required to access
    it on a different device. This means that the file can only be accessed on the same machine and same user account it was encrypted to.

    Here are the ways on how to access the encrypted file on a different computer or user profile:

    1. Decrypt the file before moving it to the new computer. You can encrypt the file to the new user profile once the transfer is complete.
    2. Move the encrypted file to the new computer including the certificate or key.

    Apparently, the only way to access the encrypted file on your new computer is to have the certificate or key. If you still have the old laptop, you can try to connect the hard drive to your new computer and decrypt the file.

    Feel free to post back if you have other questions.

    Decrypt File and to gain access

    File access denied to many files


    Since Upgrading to Windows 10, I am now experiencing problems accessing many files?

    How can I gain access to ALL my files?

    Can this be done in one operation, easily, or is it difficult?

    Step by Step instructions would be greatly appreciated?

    Thanks
