I need some help with EFS, I downloaded the whitepaper, and read through
that, however I need some help that it does not seem to give.
I am using only 1 Win 2000 workstation and NT4 servers, so the only EFS is
on my own laptop here.
How does MS handle EFS and certificates in this situation. I have no known
certificates on my system, and I still can encrypt and decrypt files. How
can this be?
I would like to grant another user on this system the ability to recover the
files, and I would like to save that certificate somewhere.
I assume that I will have to use my Thawte certificates siince there is no
server on our network to authenticate or create certificates.
All the other whitepapers at MS deal with the assumption that a Cert Server
on the Network is running Win 2000 and issuing the cert.
