Today my harddrive had some kind of mid-life crisis and got itself in a state that no amount of
dskchking or "Startup Recovery"ing could resolve, so I attached another disk, installed windows on that and recovered the files from the old disk, all well and good.
The problem is there's one directory I had encrypted, and of course the contents of the recovered files are gibberish. Is it possible, since I have full access to the disk, and know the account password it was encrypted with, I may still be able to decrypt it somehow?
Edit: I do not have explicit backups of the keys, I am hoping that Windows stores them somewhere by default.
