    I recently installed Vista on my C drive. My D (data) drive contains Windows
    XP encrypted folders which I cannot read anymore.

    How can I recover this data?

    thanks a lot

    You need to use the Encryption Certificate that was created when you
    encrypted the files on XP. Without this key, I'm afraid those files cannot
    be recovered.
