Hi!

First let me say that this boards are the best!!
Just got rid of tons of spyware/malware/etc. just by reading the tutorials here. Thanks a lot for that !!! :tazz:



Well, back to today´s problem:
Till yesterday i was running my pc on win2k and i had 2 HD´s (not one partitioned) one (master) for OS, softwares and files and the other one (slave) just for backup.
This last HD was only visible to me for safety reasons.

Today i decided to make a clean upgrade to winXP, but totally forgot to erase the sharing rules, and when the xp setup had finished the backup HD wasn´t acessible anymore.


So, i was hoping that there is a way to recover my files in this HD...


... any thoughts?

I assume you know the password used to encrypt the files. If so, this should work:
