Need Help - How to retrieve the files which are encrypted by McAfee Endpoint Encryption?


I used to work for a company where I believe my work computer had the Endpoint Encryption by McAfee. I had some personal files and pictures on the work laptop and when I changed jobs; I copied my personal data like pictures, personal documents etc. to a portable hard drive. Now, when I connect the portable hard drive to a different laptop; I am unable to open any of the files as they are encrypted.

Is there any way to recover the files? Please help.
