We are just starting to use the EFS file system on XP laptops in a W2003
domain.  I have encrypted a folder and created a file in the folder.  The
original user can open the file.  When I log in as a different user, they
cannot open the file.  So far, so good.  When I log in as Administrator, the
Administrator cannot open the file either.  This is not good.  I have
verified that the Administrator is on the file list as a recovery agent.

All accounts are domain accounts and the certificate server is a domain
enterprise CA.

Help,
Thanks,
Mike Ober.
