Uninstalled PGP

Created: 22 Mar 2011 | 1 comment

I uninstalled PGP Desktop Home Version 9.9 via the windows XPcontrol panel add or remove programs.  I reinstalled the program but now can not access my data or find the .pgd file or my keys.  Any suggestions on how I can get my data back?

When PGP is uninstalled, it leaves the keyrings and any Virtual Disk files on the computer.  If they aren't on the computer, they must have been manually removed.  The default location for the PGP keyrings on WinXP is C:\Users\<username>\Documents\PGP
