SOURCE: The Seagate encryption algorithm works

That posses a problem. They know there is a problem with the algorithm but don't plan to fix it. Wonderful. The problem is this, you would have to know what the algorithm was to be able to do anything about it and I doubt very seriously they are going to release that. That leaves you with the option of hiring a hacker to break the code or paying a specialty company to break the code and they are not cheap or well advertised. I can't think of any companies that do that work anymore. You are going to have to identify a Security company or the company that originally developed the Algorithm and see if you can work out a deal to get the corrected algorithm. The problem you have is your algorithm was designed for files smaller than 4gb and there is a permutation error that occurs on files that are larger. In a lot of cases this is a random fault that makes it very difficult to identify if not impossible depending on what level of encryption the algorithm actually represents. 32 or 64 bit encryption isn't so bad but 128 or higher is a real pain and expensive. There are some software packages available out there if you search the web for them, "Decryption Software", but again it is expensive and hard to find.

all the encryption softwares use different encryption algorithm.i.e. different steps to encode a file.
the other software shows that the file was not encrypted because for this software, you previously encrypted file is an original file and not encrypted file.
to decrypt the file you need that very encryption software that you used earlier.

Picture file MENC can't open in my PC


.MENC file extension is a Windows Mobile Encrypted File.

Open this link to read more about .MENC file. It say's there,

"MENC files are designed to be decrypted by the device that created the file. Therefore, MENC files can be transferred to a PC using Windows ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center, but it may not be possible to decrypt the file on the computer. Also, changing the GUID on a MENC file will disable the ability of the decryption program to properly decrypt the file.

To avoid encrypting files, go to Settings ? System or Settings ? Security on the Windows Mobile device and uncheck the box that says "Encrypt files placed on storage cards.""

I had windows xp home edition i have data of almost 20gb and i had encrypted it.due to some reason i had to reinstall my OS and now im not able to view those files as it is encrypted.so can anyone tell me...


Your going to have to locate the decryption tool that was supposed to come with the tool you used to encrypt the information. If you don't have that tool anymore you may be able to locate it on the internet. If that fails you will have to try a tool that decrypts files and hope it has the proper public key to get to your information. Most of these tools use a public key but figuring out which one is the hard part. Other than using a decryption service that will cost I don't see another option.
