Help Decrypt

Hi,
I had had previously Encrypted a whole bunch of my files just in the properties.
then i had reinstalled windows and had wiped the the keys (forgot about backing them up)

so now I'm trying to access them, pretty much mostly music files, Wavs, n FL format. iv even gone in and changed permissions , but hasn't made a difference.

I'm actually a DJ, and these are my music bits n pieces to alot of time and work..:|
I was wondering how i can decrypt these files without the keys?,
any help would be appreciated,
cheers.

How to use the BitLocker Repair Tool to help recover data from an encrypted volume in Windows Vista or in Windows Server 2008
Read thru this and if no help type in Decrypting in upper right hand box as there are several threads that may solve your problem.
Hopefully you can get your music back!

I think even with the bitlocker repair tool, you need to correct key or password. This might be a lost cause.

Without the keys you are never going to get this data. NEVER.
If you could that would make the point of encryption moot.

Not unless you're willing to go to a professional data recovery specialist and are prepared to spend more money than the information is worth...

That is assuming they can recover the encryption keys. If they cannot...then the data is lost forever. (Well until AES can be broken by consumer level hardware in a reasonable level of time...)
