Procedure for Decrypting WD MyPassport 2TB drive Files

I have several folders and files located on a WD 2TB USB MyPassport drive that is now connected to a WIN10-64 desktop PC. Originally, i.e., March of 2012, these folders/files were made while the MyPassport drive was connected to a Win XP machine, which is now defunct, and that machine has a different User name assigned.

Can some one point me to a documented procedure on how to go about removing the AE attribute from these folders/files?



Hi VinceofNY,

You can have a look on below KBA in this concern:
