How do I recover corrupt encrypted stealth files?

I have used an older version of Stealth to encrypt some files. When decrypting them, some of the files did not decrypt and the file names remained as they were when encrypted (example 938473922.487). Now, when trying to decrypt them again, Stealth does not recognize them as encrypted files, meaning they are listed in the list of unencrypted files. I have used setting to Beginner, so no corruption should have been done if wrong password was used.

If the encryption software doesn't recognize them or even worse, if it cannot decrypt them then the files will be lost because of the ID assigned to the files. Each time a file is encrypted, a header is added to the file so that the main application recognizes them. Once the files were corrupted, that header was modified making it impossible for the application to recognize them.
