Hi Experts,

My problem is three of Word and Excel become Encryted status on my W2000 Server. On client side, the files are green color instead of black.  I can't disable the Encrypted check box from client and server machine, even use administrator.

Please help.  Thanks!

When you say Administrator are you using the local administrator account to try and decrypt them or the domain administrator account? Also did you encrypt these files? Are you using the same username you encrypted them with to decrypt them?

hi diggisaur,

I had try to use both local and domain administrator account to decrypt them, same result.

The files stored on server over a year.  i can't trace who and when encrypt them.  p.s.: Those files' owner is administrator.
