So I had some encrypted files using the Windows file encryption on NTFS disk and I reinstalled windows xp. After that I logically couldn't access the encrypted files because of the encryption. Is there a way how to recover those files so I could access them? Reading Google most people say I'm booned, but I hope that I'm not and there is a chance to get all those files back..

If you never backed up your key, I am guessing it is brute force time, but I wouldn't know where to begin to advise you here.

Sadly, they point of encryption is to prevent access in such a case. The only possible way is if you had restore a certificate set up or if you want to attempt to crack the encryption.
