  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

    Well it's encryption, not meant to be broken. If you can find something that breaks encryption. Your files wont be perfect.
