Recover data from Microsoft Encrypting File System
Moscow, Russia – ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. has released Advanced EFS Data Recovery (AEFSDR) 1.0 for Windows NT4/2000/XP, the first program that makes it easy to recover (decrypt) files encrypted on NTFS (EFS) partitions created in Windows 2000.
Microsoft EFS (Encrypting File System) allows users to store confidential information about a computer when people who have physical access to your computer could otherwise compromise that information, intentionally or unintentionally. EFS is especially useful for securing sensitive data on portable computers or on computers shared by several users. Encrypting sensitive files by means of EFS adds another layer of security.
With AEFSDR, protected files can decrypted even in a case when the system is not bootable and so you cannot log on, and/or some encryption keys (private or master) have been tampered. Besides, decryption is possible even when Windows is protected using SYSKEY. AEFSDR effectively (and instantly) decrypts the files protected under all versions of Windows 2000 (including Service Packs 1, 2 and 3). The latest addition to ElcomSoft’s family of password recovery software allows business managers to deal with lost and destroyed encryption keys, as well as with employees who, intentionally or unintentionally, are unable to access critital files that have been encrypted.
Finally, AEFSDR is also a state-of-the-art computer forensics tool that could be used by law enforcement, military and intelligence agencies to open secured files.
Windows NT/2000/XP with Administrator privileges, 600K free on Hard Disk.
