I logged on to the server with the administrator account and tried to open a file, and it says access denied.
on the NTFS permission the administrator account has full control.

Any idea?

thanks

Please make sure the administrator have a full access to BOTH the folder and file.

Is the access denied shown on the Windows or on the Program (word,excel,etc)?

Good Luck.

Alex.

You might have to take ownership of the file first.

Right click file, Select properties, Select Security, select advanced, choose owership tab and reset the permissions to administrators.

After that go back to security and add your account and give yourself full control

 Make sure that this folder is not encrypted by other accounts.

You probably have rebooted the machine by now.
If not, do that, close all running Applications that are started at logon (Autostart) and then try again.

 Try to decrypt it with the account that you use to encrypt it.
