  • Encryption feature giving problem

    Hi all
    I have formatted C:\ drive which had XP pro installed.
    After formatting i came to know that few folders with valuable data and pictures on Drive D:\ were encrypted using windows xp encryption feature.
    Now my PC runs fine except, i can't get my encrypted data.
    Is there any way to get my data back.
    (I have formatted the virus infected XP OS and installed a new fresh copy)
    I would be grateful if somebody could show me the way.
    Thanks in advance

      Are you in a domain?
      if so, the domain admin account MAY be a recovery agent
      If not, you've lost it all
