I have a question about decrypting files. A while ago, I encrypted some files (Right Click --> Properties --> General --> Advanced --> Encrypt Contents). Recently my computer started crashing frequently and wouldn't work right, so I did a complete system restore. Before that, I moved all my files onto a external HD. Now I'm trying to move them off the HD back to my laptop, but it won't let me. It says I need administrator permission, which I allow. After a second, it says "You need permission to perform this action." I hit try again repeatedly, nothing worked.
To add to that, I can't even open the file right off the HD. These are important files and I really need access to them, help!!
If it helps: Vista x64 Business
External HD is: 500GB Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex
