We are using ProfWiz tool to migrate users profile.
We arrived to a profile about 500 gb, the tool hanged on setting user ACLs..
So we restarted the computer and moved the user again.
After the migration is finished, files and folders got encrypted.
Now we want to decrypt the files but we are not able to do it as they are encrypted with the local user.
The new domain user can't decrypt the files.
Any idea how to solve this ? as the files are really important.

Best Regards,

The files didn't get encrypted - they must have already been encrypted. User Profile Wizard cannot migrate encrypted data.

What you will need to do is run Profwiz.exe again and assign the profile back to the original user account.
