Once of the biggest problems with these encryption tools is getting at your files if the tool breaks down. I usually decrypt my files before a Windows reinstallation, and I always keep my old installation safe in case, until the new one is up and running. Of course, as your new windows installation just sees a mess of characters, it would be safer to run some form of decryption and THEN reinstall and re-encrypt. click here for how to get hold of the full product - the cover version is only as good as the money you pay for it. This full version SHOULD include a stand-alone de-crypter for which you will need you original password. Good luck.
