Ensuring no file encryption is present on Windows machine

mhdi asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I am manually migrating some user profiles from one domain to another. Last time I did this I was unable to access some files after joining the new domain because they were encrypted. I was unable to decrypt them as I was no longer connected to the original domain.

What is the best way to be 100% sure no file encryption is in place on a users computer.

I have a mix of Win 7 and Win Vista machines. I also have a Server 2008.
