Why do I receive an error message when trying to decrypt a file/folder?
"Could not Decrypt Common files (my folder). The Decryption operation failed because of an unknown error. Would you like to retry?"
There are two reasons that may cause this error message.
A) The folder or one of the files in the folder is still open in the "unprotected zone". To find out if this is the case do the following:
- (Make sure Vault is closed) Open a my computer window and open the drive on which you have migo installed.
- Go to the top of the window and click "tools" > "folder options" > click on the "view tab"
Unhide hidden files and system files ... > click "apply" > and "ok"
- Double click on the faded Vault folder and then double click on the "temp" folder.
This is your unprotected work space. If there are any files or folder in the temp directory either move them out or delete them.
- Reopen Vault.
B) If there is nothing in the temp folder then your Vault table may be corrupted.

**NOTE: This recovery tool does not work on MS Vista/ or 64 bit MS XP**
This is a recovery utility that may allow you to recover files or folders from a vault even when the standard Vault software will not. It will require your password though.
Save the file to your desktop and extract all the contents to a folder with the same name on your desktop.
Then run the file called recoverlostfiles.exe
Specify the drive and the name of the vault and then enter your password.
What do I do if I lost or forgot my Portable Vault password?
If you have forgotten your password, there is no way to have it reset. No backdoors exist with Portable Vault. A lost or forgotten password effectively means your data is not retrievable form within Portable Vault. To get portable vault working again, you have one of 2 options. (Your Vault data will be deleted with both of these options.)
Format the USB device and reinstall Portable Vault software. If Portable Vault was pre-installed with purchased hardware, you will need to obtain the original install from the hardware manufacture.
You can selectively delete the Portable Vault data on the USB Pen drive. Using Windows Explorer, browse to the portable vault device. A directory called \VAULT will exist on the portable vault device. (If you do not see this directory, you may need to change the View tab under Window Explorers menu Tool/Folder Options.
Set explorers view tab to "Show hidden files and folders? and uncheck options for “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)?
You should now be able to change to the \VAULT directory. You should delete everything in this directory with the exception of the "Portable.lic" file and if it exists the "OEM.lic" file.
Portable Vault can then be restarted and you can create a new password and vault.
