So I have these music files downloaded from this music subscription service called Groove. It comes bundled with windows 10. I got a free trial, tried it out, and downloaded some stuff from it. But there is one thing. After the pass runs out, these songs are unplayable. They have a encryption with them that does not allow them to be played in any music player including Groove. These are in .wma format. I am wondering if there is someway I could take the encryption off of these music files.

If it makes you feel any better, I have a legal copy of all the music I have downloaded, I would just legitimately hate for these files to go to waste.

If you have the encryption key you can otherwise the only way to do it is to brute force or to crack it but it will take a lot of time

Technically this thread would be against the rules, as you're basically asking "how can I crack these songs?" But Alkeryn is right, there's not really any way unless you have the encryption key so it doesn't really matter IMO. :P

But if you "legitimately" own the music, why not just rip the disc yourself (assuming it's a CD)? Unless it's some super duper rare special magical collectors edition thing, it kinda doesn't make sense you'd download them at all, especially DRM'd copies.
