Being a top I.T. man, I've re-built a standalone Win2k server but have important files encrypted using EFS. Of course not thinking about this before the re-build i have not copied the encrytion keys. So my situation is that I have the encryted files but no recovery agent or key to de-crypt the files with....... Any ideas or utilities to help????
