Questions and Answers

Can I transfer files off my phone's encrypted microSD card to my PC?

Here is my questions in details; I have an Alcatel idol 3 phone. I am considering buying a microSD card for it. Here is what I am trying to do, I need to figure out if fully-encrypting my microSD card is the best option for me. So I need to make the most informed decision possible. I need to know if I can decrypt the microSD card on my phone, in case I need to.. I need to know if I can still transfer files from my PC to my phone after the full encryption on my microSD card. I also need to know if I CAN transfer files from my phone to my to my PC with no encryption.

SD card not de-crypted before hard reset but encryption key was supposed to be saved?

I had an encrypted Samsung Galaxy S5 phone and SD card. Due to issues with the internal memory and the OS, Verizon suggested I perform a factory reset. I was not instructed to decrypt my SD card first (which is where 11 GB of my data is stored). I should have known better but I called them as the experts. Now, my SD card has all of the files available, they just cannot be read. I am trying to determine if attempting to encrypt the card again will allow me to enter my old password to get to the files since the master encryption key and settings should have been saved on the device despite the hard reset.
