win xp encrypted files
a friend of mine formated and reinstalled win xp pro
on his D partition he backed up his data.
after installing he notices that he can't acces some files because they are encrypted.
i went to take a look and he is logged in as Adminstrator, he has all permisions to the files BUT he can't decrypt the files, windows keeps saying he has no access.

select all files/directories
right mouse -> properties
security tab -> take/change ownership

don't you need a key to decrypt them?
i'd think a take ownership isn't enough.
because otherwise if your a local admin you can decrypt file from the network.
I'd have to look in my book's to be sure

"reinstalled win xp pro"
by doing so XP generates a new SID (security ID) and the "old" files were encrypted by the old SID, so by the default the new SID won't be able to read them
but taking ownership of the files shouldn't be any problem
