I'm unable to startup my laptop in normal or safe mode, so I booted with my Win 7 CD, chose Repair, then DOS window. I'm copying data off onto my backup drive. Problem is that I can't copy off some encrypted files. I get "access denied" error.
Is there any way to copy encrypted files onto my external drive in DOS? I've been using xcopy for other files.
I have a backup of my encryption key so am hoping that I can use that to decrypt on the new drive... not sure if that will work, either.
A friend helped me take the laptop drive out and use his cable to read the data and copy it off, after installing the backup of the encryption key. So the fix was the cable and installing my encryption key on the 2nd pc.
