    Hello rajlacmanphysio, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    When you installed a new copy of Windows 10, you removed the EFS file encryption certificate and key that was used to access the encrypted files.

    Unless you have a backup of this specific EFS file encryption certificate and key to import, you won't be able to access those files.

    You could try one of those 3rd party EFS data recovery programs from a Google search, but you may not be able to recover the files without the key.
