I was playing with my computer and decided to try encrypting my files so I chose some pictures, right clicked and clicked "encrypt" and a large box with a pencil on the side came up. I put in a password, re- typed it and clicked "ok".
The pictures have disappeared from "my documents" and I do not know how to get them back!

help please.

What Operating System are you using?

What program are you using to encrypt the files?

I am using win xp.
I have no idea what programme I am using. I thought it was windows xp's own as when I right click a file various options show including the "encrypt" files and "decrypt files.

Regards.

The files will be moved to the sfe storage vault of whatever program you are using , howver the nme of the file should be unchanged , just do a search for the name of one of our pictures.
