Here is the lowdown, we have an external HD, and we backed up all the data needed too it. What i wasnt told was that the backup was being encrypted as it was being saved to the HD. So the pc was given to me to format and reinstall windows on. I did and now we get an access denied error when we try to access the data that is on the external HD. I have recovered the whole docs&settings folder using a format recovery tool, and copied the user profile that was used to create the encrypted data over the top of the same named user profile on my own PC and still get the error. This is extremly HOT, I need any advice I can get... What are all the files I need to be able to access this data?
