I don't know if this will help, but you can play with it. I did something like this once with wordperfect.

duplicate your encrypting a file(make up something). Then save the same exact file with no encrypting, and a slightly different name. Open(view) the files and see what is different about the encrypted file, and delete the character that is different. (you will use the hex view, then edit) P.S make a copy of your original before you try to mess with it. Hopefully, if you can do it with a dummy file, you can repeat it on your orig. Good luck.
