Fresh Win 10 install wiped EFS keys / cert. possible to recover from Backblaze backup?

admin 26 Aug , 2021 0 Comments data recovery

Made a rookie mistake believing my files were backed up to Backblaze in worst case scenario but realized that a number of important files were Encrypted by me using EFS.

I 'think' I remember the pasword used but I did a fresh install of Windows 10 overwriting the partition and don't think I have any way of reverting back to it to get the certificate?

I do have as mentioned access to the backblaze copy of c: but as I understand it it's hit or miss on what that contains and certainly not a full image of windows.

Appreciate any creative ideas!
