It is good practise to export the public and private keys, to a secure
medium, for the recovery agent so that you can restore them if required.
I used EFS on two drive drives on my W2K management machine (not on the
drive). The files were set with permissions for the local admin and two
domain accounts. The owner of the files was the local admin account. The
agent for those files was the local admin account. Well the system drive
I can't decrypt the files on those two drives because I can't rebuild the
admin account with the same SID. Is there another way to get them back?
I have some of my documents encrypted before under my NTFS drive (Win2k
SP2), after I restore my system using ghost, I was unable to access the
file, I tried everything to chage the attribute of the file, security
properties, but the decryption procedure never work. I'm lost.
I've look to the KB articles, and try every methods, Backup, and restore in
any methods, it just dont work, I think the problem is either it is a bug,
or I dont have the Encryption Key to decrypt it.
Is there any workaround on this? Can someone kindly tell me what can I do to
get my files back? Any help or expertise would be very appreciated.
