Extract Encrypted Files in Windows 8

Written by Lucy John on April 25, 2023

“Hi, I have worked for few month on my Windows 8 system to finish one of my project thesis. As it was containing very important info, I encrypted that file so that no modification can be done to it. Tomorrow morning I have meeting regarding the thesis which I have done. So I thought of moving that file to external device. However, upon selecting that file I gave command to copy it to external device. I don’t know what went wrong but my system got turned off when the transfer process was going on. When I restarted my Windows 8, I could not find my encrypted files in its original location. I searched for it using search option but no use. Is there any suggestion to recover lost encrypted files from Windows 8 operating system? Thanks in advance!!!!”
