If your files were encrypted, and you did not make back up copies of your Identitie Certificates, YOU ARE DOOMED. Even the most EXPENSIVE data recovery places in the world with TEN MILLION DOLLAR recovery machines cannot retrieve your files. Not for $100,000.00.

My previous pc was crashed but the hdd is ok and i have some files locked by my win locker in that hdd. now i have a new acer notebook with windows 8. How can i recover my encrypted file from that hdd?


First you should try to connect the HD to the computer. There are universal HD connectors, that go into an USB connector.
Then try you decrypt it, with the same program and password, you did the encryption with.
Perhaps you even should emulate the operating system you used to encrypt.

Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained, Part II by Tha Mp3 Doctor WMA files are...


Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained, Part II
by Tha Mp3 Doctor

WMA files are special. There are two types of WMA file, and the Mp3 or digital Audio Player documentation will not always tell which of these two types the Mp3 player will recognize. Type I is a non-licensed, or non-DRM-protected WMA file. DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it is Microsoft’s copyright system for music files. If you have a type of Mp3 player that will only accept non-DRM protected files, the product specs for your player will NOT mention the words "DRM" or "Windows Plays ForSure" on them (unless they are using it in the negative, such as "this player does NOT support DRM encryption"). In MOST cases (there are more and more exceptions), Windows Media Player will convert songs from CD’s that you personally bought from the store into non-DRM encrypted WMA format.

The second type of WMA file is a DRM-encrypted WMA file, and there are several subtypes of these. Every DRM-encrypted file can have "play rights," "burn rights," and "transfer rights." "Play rights" mean you can play the song on your computer, "burn rights" mean you can burn the song to CD, and "transfer rights" mean you can transfer the song to your Mp3 player. Once again, not all WMA files are created equal. If you have a BASIC subscription to a music service such as Napster, you may download songs that have "play rights" – you can play them on your computer without any problem; but they may lack burn rights and transfer rights – so you cannot burn them to CD, or transfer them to your Mp3 player without incident. The solution here is to upgrade your music service to the premium, more expensive subscription that includes burn rights and transfer rights.

Then there are "fixed-term" licenses and "unlimited" licenses on WMA files. A fixed-term license will expire after so many days, months, or years; and will require you to resynchronize your songs to the music service or to your computer in order to continue playing them. This is a key reason behind songs "disappearing." Napster and Rhapsody are two examples of music services with fixed-term licenses. You must resynchronize your Mp3 player to your computer every 30 days, and you must keep you music service subscription active. If you let your subscription lapse, then the songs that were once working will no longer be playable. Once again, the only remedies are to renew your music service subscription (legal), convert those songs into a different format that the Mp3 player will recognize (possibly illegal), or to use DRM-removal software (illegal and unreliable).

One word needs to be said about burning your own personal CD’s and transferring them to the Mp3 player. CD’s naturally put song files into CDA format. Most Mp3 players do not recognize CDA format. So you will have to use Windows Media Player (easiest, IMO) or some other software to convert the CDA files into Mp3, WMA, or some other format that your Mp3 player recognizes, BEFORE you can transfer them to the Mp3 player.

Real Audio files also have an encryption system, and may not work with most Mp3 players – check your product documentation.

Audiobooks are in their own format and bring their own special problems which fall outside the scope of this article.

There are a ton of music services out there. iTunes uses AAC format. Napster, Rhapsody, Bearshare, Spiral Frog, and many others use DRM-protected WMA format nowadays. Limewire and Morpheus generally use Mp3 or non-DRM-encrypted files. Double check the formats that your player will support BEFORE choosing a music service. Conversely, if you already have a music service, choose an mp3 player that’s right for your particular service. Note: most store workers do not have the faintest idea of what I have been discussing in this article, so don’t trust their judgment – educate yourself first.

AS A GENERAL RULE OF THUMB (as always, there are exceptions), all Mp3 players recognize the Mp3 file format. The Mp3 file format is the least problematic of all the file formats. It takes up less space on your Mp3 player than most file formats – so you can load more songs onto your player than if you were using other formats. So, if you download all of your songs into Mp3 format, or tell Windows Media Player to convert your own CD’s into Mp3 format, then you will rarely go wrong.

Invalid key while unprotect file using finger print utility


Sounds like they are encrypted with your old key. I don't expect you can get into them without setting up the old key in your new system.

Removing encryption key


To open a locked memory card, select Options > Unlock memory card. Enter the password.
If you cannot recall the password to unlock a locked
memory card, you may reformat the card, in which case
the card is unlocked and password removed.
Formatting a memory card destroys all data stored on
the card.

Encryption
Select Menu > Tools > Encryption.
Encrypt your device or memory card to prevent
outsiders from accessing your important information.

Encrypt device memory or memory card

To encrypt the device memory,

select phone memory.
To encrypt the memory card, select memory card from the following:

Encrypt without saving key

• memory card without saving the encryption key. If
you select this option, you cannot use the memory
card in other devices, and if you restore factory
settings, you cannot decrypt the memory card.
Encrypt and save key

• and save the key manually in the default folder. For
security, store the key to a safe place outside the
device. For example, you can send the key to your
computer. Enter a pass phrase for the key and a
name for the key file. The pass phrase should be long
and complex.

Encrypt with restored key - Encrypt the memory
• card with a key you have received. Select the key file,
and enter the pass phrase

Whenever i copy a files from external device lik cd dvd or usb. It automatically turns in encrypted format ie all files r in green colour. Can any1 solve this prob. Pls


You can go to the desktop folder and see if that whole folder is set as encrypted. Right click on the folder and clock properties. Then click the advanced button, and see if the encrypted check box is marked. If it is, see if you can clear the check mark.Try doing the same thing with any individual file that is encrypted. You can format a USB drive with some format other than NTFS. When you copy an encrypted file over to that USB drive, it should force it to be unencrypted, if it is being encrypted by EFS. Otherwise, it was encrypted before it was put on the CD or DVD, and there is nothing you can do except try to get the password used to encrypt it.

How can i unlock my passport without formatting it


Hello,

This is by design. Western Digital and other manufacturers who offer encryption(locking) do this to prevent others from accessing your data without your permission.

If you wish to format the drive, you will have to unlock it, copy the files off to another drive or computer then reformat and copy the files back.

Unfortunately they do not have an option to unlock permanently without formatting.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

I wanna convert my photo menc format to jpeg format what should i do?


Actually, .menc file (Microsoft windows mobile encrypted file) isn't a real file type extension, it only indicates that the file is encrypted on a Storage Device (windows mobile) where Storage Card Encryption feature is installed.... They can't be directly converted to Jpeg. You have to remove the encryption and then restore them to normal jpeg file. First transfer the files to the computer, and then disable the Storage Card Encryption from the Mobile/Device and again transfer back to the device.
More details with illustrations here (click here).

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I CANNOT VIEW MENC FORMAT


The .menc extension is the indicator that tells whether a file is encrypted. The purpose of the extension is to indicate that you can't open those files. A Lock icon is also associated with the encrypted files.
When you insert the storage card back to your device where the files were encrypted, the [GUID] will match with the decryption key on your device and the [GUID].menc extension will not be displayed. Encrypted files will appear just like normal files and they can be opened.

Decrypting files:
To decrypt files that are encrypted, the current solution is to transfer them from the storage card to a computer via ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center, and then copy them back to the storage card after the Storage Card Encryption has been disabled on the device.
  1. To disable Storage Card Encryption:
  2. Go to Start>Settings>System Tab>Encryption.
  3. Uncheck the box that says “Encrypt files placed on the storage card.”
  4. Tap OK.
