Recently a friend of mine encrypted some of his files. He simply right clicked the folder and under advanced properties encrypted the files using the default system within Windows 7. He proceeded to backup this folder onto a USB drive and then had his entire HDD reformatted. He did not backup any certificates or keys. The question is, can these files be decrypted using any sort of program or method? I know his username and windows login password at the time of encryption. Any help is greatly appreciated.
