Hi Guys, My name is Werner Kunamwene, a senior sys admin at a company called MobiPay. I encrypted my files not knowing that after I will be required to change my password monthly. I have changed the password so many times that I lost track of the original password when I actually encrypted my files. I only encrypted one folder on my computer. Is there any way I can recover these files? They are very critical files.
