Awhile ago I played with encrypting some files...

In the course of reinstalling windows I'm now locked out of those files... I need to set up a encryption recovery agent but Xp's not giving me the option...

How is this done?!? There's got to be a way...

Define "encryption." If you are talking about files locked with the NTFS "Encrypt Data To Secure Contents" box on a secondary drive, you're screwed. 2000/XP bases security on what is called a Security Identifier (SID). Each username is assigned a SID, and SIDs are never reused. So simply creating a account with the same name, password, and rights will not work. Your data is hosed.

In the help files it gives a somewhat long explanation on how you can get encryted files back "in case an employee leaves"... But what it says to do does'nt do... :D...

Anyway it's nothing important... :)...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
