Hello everybody!

At first i had 2 OS: XP and Server 2003. In XP i had to use encoded methods granted
buy XP (like win2000, Server2003) to some dir and files (by advanced properties of files|dirs).
But subsequently XP died (after this happened i didnt format partition with XP).

And HOW please tell how can I RECOVER data encoded by another OS in 2003 Server.

You need access to the EFS private keys for either the user or recovery
agent to decrypt those files and their passwords. The best way is from a
backup of the private keys. If you did not backup the private keys and the
user/RA profiles are still intact and you know the passwords for those
accounts you "may" have luck recovering the data through a paid support call
to Microsoft or a third party recovery program that will run around
100. --- Steve

should use EFS without reading this first.

Thank you very much for Your advices Steve.
Paid support call to Microsoft is unrealizable.
Third party EFs Data Rec prog found essential keys, but
it still cant unlock decrypted files after indicating appropriate
user account login and password. (that login was in Cyrillic,
password in Latin - english).
P.S this software was good at recovering data in working system, where
password and login are written in latin.
P.P.S
If there any others decrypting software?

thanks

I don't know of any offhand. Try searching http://google.com for : " efs
recovery software " . I would also try to email the people at ElcomSoft to
see if they can help further. Good luck. --- Steve
