Yes that is what I have been following, BUT I just found this which I believe relates directly to me...In fact I know it does hah.
I realized the destinction when I noticed I could copy SOME files from the different directories in this folder and not others...and upon further observation, the ones I couldn't copy were encrypted. This happened because I saved a bunch of different folders from the original computer. I BELIEVE that the folders that have encrypted files in them were shared on the network, so maybe that is how they are encrypted?
Microsoft says they become encrypted by using the Encrypted File System (EFS) does anyone know if sharing a folder uses this system by default? I dont know how they would have been encrypted otherwise. And now how can I remedy this situation?? Microsoft says only the user that encrypted them can decrypt them, but the original user has been wiped in a reinstall...they mention being able to decrypt them using "the designated recovery agent"...any ideas what that is in reference too? Thanks for any help
