Quote:
I encrypted my user files using windows EFS and the user files are in a diffrent partition. After that I formatted and reinstalled XP Pro OS. Now I am not able to decrypt my files or not able to open it even in admin mode. I know, bcs, I have no choice to get the same key to decrypt it after XP re installation. Do u have any idea or crack or software to decrypt it? My whole data is DEAD now. I can see it, I am not able to open it? Any help or any trial method to open this files is really acceptable from your side. Your help is really appreciable.

Ok, all i have to say is your friend is in trouble..
There is no known methods to manually decrypt the EFS encryption. Unless you backup your certificates and private key the data is almost lost.

But there is a tool available online which seems to be able to break even the 256 bit EFS encryption.

Check out Advanced EFS Data Recovery.
CRACK PASSWORD - Advanced EFS Data Recovery

Download the latest trial version:
http://www.crackpassword.com/download/aefsdr.zip

It costs $99 for the home version. Either buy it or use Google wisely.

Best of luck...
