How to get encrypted file found?

I have installed vault and encrypted photos and videos. Then, I reset my phone without decrypt files. Now, how can I get my files back?


Unfortunately, since you didn't decrypt your SD card before you Factory Reset your device, you will be unable to access your files on your SD card. The SD card is locked; you need the files you removed to unlock it. In the future, remember that you will need to decrypt your SD card before you use it in another device or perform a Factory Reset on your Android phone.

How to decrypt files after phone is reset?

I have a Galaxy S3 with an encrypted microSD card. Phone was behaving slowly so I wiped my phone with great results. However all my pictures/files that were encrypted are no longer usable. Any solution? Thanks,
