My OS had been corrupted and I was forced to re-install it. After new OS installation I can't open my encrypted files with the same laptop and device. I disabled the password option and only I could open these files by fingerprint , before last OS corruption. How I can open these encrypted files?

The files had a digital signature when they were encrypted. That digital signature isn't available now if you've installed the OS and set up another fingerprint to unlock the laptop or files, but that doesn't mean you can't try it. Firstly, install the fingerprint driver and software then use the application to encrypt to scan for files. If they're recognized, attempt an unlock using the current fingerprint. If it's not working, you will not be able to decrypt the files.
