Decrypt recovered files

During the recovery of encrypted files to any destination that doesn’t support encryption, Active@ UNDELETE creates temporary (*.EFS) files. These files can be decrypted later at any time by using the File Decryption Tool.  

  1. Open the Decrypt Files dialog

    • Use the command tools and select Decrypt Files from the main menu.
    • From the Tools tab in the command bar, choose the Decrypt Files command.
  2. Add files to decrypt

    Add temporary recovered encrypted files (*.efs) or open the Decrypted Files log (*.txt) created during recovery by using the Add button.

    Decrypt files dialog box

    Options

    Delete temporary files
    All temporary recovered encrypted source files will be deleted after decryption.
    Browse Destination
    The folder where files will be decrypted will be opened by the default OS files browser.
    Create Detailed Log
    The log files will contain more detailed information about the forthcoming process.
    Use Disk Lock
    The source disk will be locked during the file recovery process. The disk will be unlocked as soon as the process is completed.
    Ignore Disk Lock Errors
    With this option on, the file recovery process will continue even if locking of the source device fails.
    Ignore Write Errors
    No error messages will appear and all write errors will be ignored during the recovery process.
    Ignore Read Errors
    No error messages will appear and all read errors will be ignored during the recovery process.

    Existing files conflict resolution

    Generate unique file name
    If a file with the same name exists in the destination folder, then a file with a unique name will be generated to avoid overwriting.
    Ask before overwrite
    If a file with a certain name already exists in the destination folder, the application will ask the user for a specific action to take.
    Overwrite without prompt
    All files will be overwritten even if they already exist in the destination folder.
    Skip existing files
    If a file with the same name already exists in the destination folder, recovery of that file will be skipped.
  3. Decrypt selected files

    Set other options if necessary and then click the Decrypt button to complete the task.

Result

When process completes decrypted files will appear in destination folder.
