I can't read my files? its an Android HTC one?

I then emailed that file to myself but now cannot read it as its all jumbled?

Jumbled files are an indication that you are either trying to open an unsupported file type, using the wrong app, or dealing with a corrupted file. The most likely two causes are that you are using an unsupported app, or that the file was somehow corrupted during the transfer. To confirm that the app works, try and open a another file of the same type. If it opens, then you have a corrupted file. If it does not open, then the problem is that it is an unsupported file type. In this case, you will need to use a different app to read your file.

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.

I have my husbands old phone, and he has some encrypted files that I wanted to read?

I cannot read files from the old Android phone

Ask your husband about his password. If he remembers it and allows you to use it, then you can just type it. Otherwise, you have to honor his privacy and obey the law. If you want to remove the lock with files, then just hard-reset the smartphone.
