File Vault Gone - Cannot Access My Encrypted Files
My BitDefender just auto updated to the new version without File Vault -- I had no idea this was coming or I would have backed up my files. But here we are...
I've gone through the whole File Vault Recovery Utility but it's not working. I give it the location of the .bvd vault file, I punch in the password, I give it a drop directory to place the files, and I run the export. It displays a bunch of text as it works through the process and then displays "Transfer Finalized" but when I check the drop directory, it's blank. The transfer is not working. I even tried running it with an intentionally incorrect password and it still ran through the same process and displayed "Transfer Finalized" without throwing an error... something is not right about this tool.
What is the deal? How do I get my files out? I tried uninstalling BitDefender and reinstalling the 2019 version but it just hits the BitDefender server which automatically sends the most up to date version. I'm at loss. Can anyone assist?
