    Files Keep Saving as Encrypted


    Lenovo Thinkpad E531, Windows 10 Pro x64 v1903

    After the Windows 10 v1903 update, new files are automatically being saved as encrypted (with gold lock icon in the upper-right corner), except for those created directly on the desktop.

    - If I remove the encryption per file or globally, I can no longer save the file to my desktop ("access denied").
    - I used a reg file to "Take Ownership" of the file and the Desktop folder. That usually fixes any "access denied" issues, but not in this case.
    - If I restore the file's encryption, I can save it to my desktop again.
    - Encryption noticeably slows down file saving.

    Is there a way to remove the automatic encryption without being prevented from saving files to the desktop? Any troubleshooting ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

  3. encrypted files

    Hi Iman,

    Error message 0x80071771 means that you need to restore the file encryption key in order for you to decrypt the encrypted files. On the other hand, you can still try these steps and see if it will work:

    • Right-click the file or folder that you want to decrypt.
    • Click File ownership and click Personal.

    Feel free to contact us if you need assistance with Windows.

    Windows XP file encryption

    My suggestion to you is to look into what kind of encryption the program used, and look for a way to break that type of encryption. Sorry I can't say a specific program for sure.
