np. you might want to look into buying a hd and using it as a slave drive (or getting an external). that way you can keep all of your files etc. on the drive and whenever you need to reformat, you dont have to worry about backing up files, copying them, etc, etc.

the easiest solution i know of is to convert the hard drive from the NTFS file system to the older (but in most peoples' cases, just as good) FAT32 file system. the encryption you're dealing with is not supported by FAT32 -- it just goes away on conversion, and then you could access your files from DOS or from another boot CD. let me know if you need a utility that can do that for you without destroying all your data.

EDIT: A utility that can fix my idiotic mistake would be great! :)
