    While still under XP, I encrypted a folder. During my Vista clean install, I first copied the folder to an external drive. After the clean install, the folder and its contents are inaccessible. I assume this has something to do with its having been encrypted under an account that no longer exists.



    Any ideas how I can recover my very valuable files?



    thanks,
