XP= "Extra Poor"
I hope the encrypted USB-HDD isn't your only backup.
Purge that user.
Learn cryptography and break the key to recover your data.
Sorry, too good to pass up.
You need to look at why you can't access those files if you have the
valid key and the required software. Assuming that its not hardware
encryption native to the drive.
If the data is that important, learn cryptography and break the key.
