I have always kept my Visual Studio projects on an external drive. Works great for years. Let's me take the drive from work to home to laptop on the road and all my PC's point to the K: drive to get their code so there are no synchronization issues.
Last month my employer issued me a great new HP laptop just before a trip.
I went back to work on my desktop today only to find that all of the .csproj files I worked on have somehow been marked for encryption and belong to the user from my laptop (Clint@ClintTop)
They won't open on my desktop development PC because access is denied. I can't seem to add a new user in the User Access dialog shown here so I can use these again.
What really perplexes me is that it isn't all the files: Just the .csproj files.
- Anyone ever seen this?
- Is there an option other than putting my laptop on the network and copying these across the network to my desktop and HOPE that the copies can be opened?
- Is there a certificate from the laptop I can copy to my desktop?
I'm really in a Whiskey Tango Foxtrot situation here.
Sorry for the filename blurring: This is from work.
UPDATE: Its not BitLocker because it isn't turned on for any drive
