I recently had a laptop die on me. I pulled the harddrive and bought an enclosure. It is a Sata to USB enclosure. The laptop was Vista and the desktop i am moving the files to is XP. I have set the ownership to everyone. However, most of the files i want are encrypted on the laptop harddrive by that user. I have tried to boot from that harddrive and that was a no go. I was curious if there is a way to decrypt those files so that i can move them onto my desktop. I have tried to add a user as well but it gives me a windows error 5.
Sorry, Tom's Hardware forum doesn't provide any guide to bypass password protection. We cannot verify if you are the legit owner.
