    encrypted files/folders (SP3)

    In going through an old "C" drive of mine, I encountered a few files that were encrypted (via XP)...

    I do vaguely recall encrypting them to explore the feature...

    Fortunately 99.99% of the drive is not so encrypted...

    How do I un-encrypt them?

    I would rather avoid booting to the old drive in question if I can avoid doing so...

    Try MSKB 308993: How to remove file or folder encryption in Windows XP - I suspect your options are limited...

    Leif,

    Thanks, I'll try it...

    Ultimately I may just have to try booting to that drive...

    Fortunately the files involved are relatively few and non-critical...
