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.

MENC finle stands for Microsoft Windows Mobile encrypted file. This means that the encryption is turned on in your Windows mobile phone all your pics become .menc files when the encryption is on. Turn off he encryption.
To disable encryption
go to Settings ? System or Settings ? Security on the Windows Mobile device and remove check the box that says "Encrypt files placed on storage cards."

Password in files


Well if you can save the file but are unsure how to store and keep the file on your pc and have it be safe I would recommend something called Folder Lock. I will provide you a link.

Link: http://www.newsoftwares.net/folderlock/

Summary:
  • On-the-fly 256-bit AES encryption (military standard) for data security.
  • Just as Lockers in physical world, different users can create their own Lockers. A single user can create multiple Lockers with different passwords as well. With Folder Lock, you can choose either to encrypt using 256-bit AES on-the-fly encryption or lock files, folders and drives anywhere on your computer. Each Locker can contain your encrypted files as well as your personal list of locked items.

How I can "Decrypt data files" on Win XP Professional.


Since you reinstalled the OS, the certificate for the user has changed. You can try the following methods, but there is no guaranty it will work.
These method apply only if the computer name and users name stays the same as the original. If the machine name or the users name or the users privilege changed, these method will not work.

Only the following people can decrypt an encrypted file:
· The user who encrypted the file
· Any user who was designated as a recovery agent before the file was encrypted
· Any user who has the public key or private key for the recovery agent or the user who originally encrypted the file
· Any user who has been granted access to the file
Members of the Administrators group cannot decrypt files unless the person who encrypted the files designated them as recovery agents before encrypting the files.

Note You must be the original user who encrypted the file or a designated recovery agent for the file to follow these steps

Method 1:
To remove encryption from a file, follow these steps:
1. Use Windows Explorer to locate the encrypted file that you want to decrypt.
2. Right-click the encrypted file, and then click Properties.
3. On the General tab, click Advanced.
4. Click to clear the Encrypt contents to secure data check box, click OK, and then click OK again.
