I need some help! I have recently left my job and moved all of my personal "My Documents" files to a USB Based external hard drive. When trying to access files such as my resume I am recieving this message "cannot access document, the document may be read only or encrypted. I spoke with my old IT admistrator and she told me the system did it unintentionally. I need to decrypt these files as I have a ton of peronal stuff on here. Please help!!

Yes, the software that was on the machine that initially encrypted. Whatever it was, you will need a copy of that software to decrypt your files. Other than that, any suggestions would be a violation of the forum rules pertaining to circumventing security measures.
