hello, i am newbie with encryption and need your help to solve my decryption errors from win4gpg.I moved to pc platform recently from mac.
I have stored some encrypted files that vary in size i.e. from 500 MB to 10GB each on my hdd. Each file was encrypted with GPGsuite.org on mac though. These files, were either in ZIP or RAR format, then i encrypted them.
I found win4gpg while looking for a program to decrypt my files on pc. Win 7 64b.
I installed the program, and i run kleopatra. I import a database with all my keys ok.
I go to Decrypt files, i chose the one i want ending with .gpg extension.
Some of these files, were encrypted for 2 users i.e. user1,user2 with one go on mac.
After selection, a screen appears,
I leave all options as they are and click decrypt button.
It asks for pass.
BUG?. If i leave this window innactive for over 10sec, it disappears and cannot bring it back, i have to go through the beginning. Also it shows that is decrypting (moving bar on top of window) which is misleading i guess.
I paste a VERY long password, maybe over 80 alphanumeric characters.
I click ok, it shows is decrypting… Then i get error message.
I click on details and it shows 2 receipients (the ones (userIDs) i encrypted the file for)
What do i do wrong or better how do i fix this problem please ? I cannot decrypt anything…
- BUGS continued. If I click OK on error window, i go back to main window with keys listed etc. If i carry on all steps from beginning, it does NOT ask for password again when its time, showing that possibly password is still kept in clipboard/ memory and it should not ! One reason is that i could have typed wrong password…
This way it continues decryption without password input leading to same error.
I am wondering, after i imported my key files, do i need a primary key also ? Because i cannot remember how do i find it from my database, or if i have to create a new one and continue with decryption of these files.
Any help would be appreciated as i am stuck and dont know what to do…
