    Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    Advanced EFS Data Recovery solved the problem.
    Thank God, Nihil and CybertecOne
    Now I have a copy of that folder. It searched for all the stored keys and decrypted the files into a new folder but it was not clear which key it used.

    I would be probably thinking of a way to delete the original folder after the final exams

    Thanks everybody

    Thanks for the feedback mate!

    It helps if we know what worked and what didn't

    Obviously, I have to buy my software, but it is nice to know that the trial version was not so disabled as to not do the job.

    Good luck with your exams!

    Glad you found a solution to your problem boyboy400. Something similar happend to a system I was working on and I was able to access the files from the builtin Administrator Account. To enable this account, go to a CMD Shell and type:

    net user administrator /active:yes

    Now you can log out and you'll have Administrator on the account page. Click it to log in, there is no password by default. Then you can see if you have access to the original files, Take Ownership, etc. To disable the account again type:

    net user administrator /active:no

    from your own account in a shell. Just thought I would share, most people don't know about this. Have Phun!!!

    Wazz, boyboy mentioned that he tried to access the file from the admin account but had no luck. As it turns out, the issue was not with folder permissions but some wonky issue with encryption or corruption.

    Hey Keezel.......I just noticed that, my bad. I read this "I also switched user to admin" and interpreted it the wrong way.....
