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

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.
