Hopefully someone can help me understand this situation. Currently
implementing efs, encryption and offline files for laptop users. Everything
is perfect when people are connected to the LAN. In offline folder settings I
also have enabled to encrypt offline files. However when users are offline
and have access to their files they can never encrypt new files/folders. Its
bad enough that they can't see if the other files are encrypted (this is by
design according to microsoft)
