Hi,

I'm testing the EFS with our Windows 2003 server, as recovery agent i use
the administrator-account. I was able to encrypt some files with my user
name,
and when i go to the details of an encrypted file I see my name an the
administrator as recovery agent.
Then I tried to decrypt the file with the recovery agent. So I logged on as
administrator on the file server and tried to decrypt the file and receive
the error "access denied" (administrator has full access to the file).

any ideas?

thanks in advance,

Juergen N.
