how to protect customer files server 2003 sbs

Hello everyone

I was asked by a customer thet no one  could get files  out of the office not by email or by copying .

When I tried to use encryption, I saw the word DETAILS does not appear when I encrypt an entire folder only when I encrypt a single file

So I need to add DATA RECOVERY AGENTS each file separately which is not practical

First question: Is there a way to add DATA RECOVERY AGENTS the entire folder?

A second question: Is there another software to do the work I saw norton there is something called PGP Does anyone know?

Thank you

I'm not sure what makes you think that encrypting files will prevent those files from being attached to email and sent out of the office

Nor would that prevent you from burning to CD/DVD or copying to flash drive or even floppy if there are any installed

You can configure Exchange to prevent attachments and you can configure group policies on the server to prevent the use of USB flash drives/Burning CDs/DVDs

Your other option is to look at Rights Managment for Windows Server

abaut group policy I cant use it becouse thet this customer need to use usb  disks

If you need to allow USB drives tge Cris's other suggestion is the only valid recoursebyou have left. Windows Rights Management Services with appropriate templates, licenses, and CALs.

Well the customer cant have it "both ways"   USB drives allow customers to transport files at will which contradicts their stated goal in your post.

All Encryption can eventually be unlocked :-)

Are workstations XP or Windows 7?
