Hi,

My HDD died!!

I recovered my files from the dead HDD by using it as a secondary drive and
extracting almost all the files and folders.

My problem is that I had offline folders enabled that I need to recover
back. After some investigation, I found out that offline line files and
folders are kept in the C:\windows\CSC folder. I extracted this CSC folder
from the dead HDD. However, they seem to be encrypted.

Following is the dir listing of my recovered CSC folder. The size of these
folders (5Gig) seems to indicate the correct size of my offline folder.

Can you please help me to recover these files back. All the contents of seem
to be in the d1 - d8 folders, but they appear in a format of 00000A01 -
not recognisable as a one of my files. They look encrypted and I need them
to be decrypted back to my normal form.

Can someone please help.

thanks heaps!

Hi Denver (and everyone else who can help)
I've just had the same problem; My HDD died!!, but I'm not as clever as Denver. How do you recover a dead HDD?!
