Access denied to encrypted files after changing password
I had certain files encrypted under a standard user account on Win 7
I changed my password, and then lost power without logging off. After logging in again I was no longer able to access those files. Changing the password back to the original did not help.
I have imported my backup certificate to the personal store with the correct password, although this did not grant me access.
I have tried importing my cert as an admin user and taking ownership, still no dice.
Is this because I did not backup my certificate/key after changing my password? Have I now lost access?
What can I do?
