ROBOCOPY and backing up encrypted files?

Robocopy backs up all files except the ones I have that are encrypted.
Is there a way you can force ROBOCOPY to backup encrypted files?
Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you seen the information contained in:

The specific switch to review is:

/efsraw
 Copies all encrypted files in EFS RAW mode.
 
Note that when you copy files in this mode they will become slightly larger because they will contain the metadata previously contained in the NTFS permissions.  This additional info specifies the user who has the rights to decrypt the file.

You cannot view the contents of the file until the user who created the file decrypts it.
