decrypt a flash drive
I have a 4G flash drive, I recently used it to make a powerpoint presentation for school, but I accidently encrypted the flash drive onto the computer I have at home and I can't use my flash drive at school to show my presentation (the presentation won't come up). Is there a way to decrypt the flash drive?

Thank you

Do you know how you encrypted it? (Actually I do not need to know. I can not help you crack it.)

If it is your flash drive that you own, you could always reformat it... That will erase everything and restore it to like new condition.

We don't provide assistance in bypassing passwords or encryption here. Please read the TSG Rules.

Use the same program you encrypted it with to decript it.
