i had acciendently gone into desktop and checked encrypt all files and folders, so what ever windows uses to encrypt files. now i cant get it back to my pc and i jsut dread having to recreate the file.
When you say "they were moved to the server", is this a server in a work setup or a home server? If the former, you need to talk to your network administrator. If the latter, what sort of server is it?
Have you actually asked him? If he's that incompetent it sounds like you must have moved the files to the server, so why can't you move them back again? Once back you should be able to access and decrypt them.
hmmmm not working im getting an error that says this machine is disabled for file encryption. maybe it has somethign to do with the server settings?
also getting an error when trying to cut and paste man this blows.
how about a my pc accoutn and get one of you guys to try and go in there and get it out for me lol.
im glad im on vacation tomorow and a good thing they have pdfs.
but i still would liek to figure out why itst doing this
i have encrypted files today and can unencrypt them so its not my machine i have full admin rights to my pc
i am about to leave work but any info you all can give me on this woudl be great like i said my files were being encrypted and i didnt know so i dont know how many files are on the server. but it seems like once they are on server the loose the key and you can not decrypt them anymore? i cant even get them back to my pc because its dening me access to the file? i have full admin rights on my pc. i have to because of the stuff i do, i suppose i work with solidworks and these are part and drawing files im tryign to get back. they are green which normally they are black the lettering that is...
no i know what a zip file is this crap is encrypted and now i cant even open it up there were other files that were like this but somehow i went and decrypted them so others could see them except i dont seem to be able to do it now hmm it guy did something maybe? we looked in the ini files where there would be an entry that says my pc is not able to encrypt but there was nothing and like i said i encrypted some files earlier and hid them so they couldnt find my music while i was gone.
i also would like to thank all your efforts ahead of time for this issue resolved or not.
The best person to help you is your Network Administrator, however superior to him you feel - that's his job. He'll have Admin rights on the server and it'll be a breeze for him to restore the files for you. Once they're back on your PC there should be no problem.
