Encryption file problem
Posted on 2012-03-12
We recently moved all of our User Shared Folders from an SBS 2003 server to a 2008 R2 server. Some of the users had encrypted data and we decrypted the data, copied to the 2008 server and then encrypted. That all works fine.
The problem is I need to restore some files from our offsite backup that are several years old.
I found if I restore to the old SBS 2003 server the user can read. If I restore the same files to the new server the user cannot open the files. I did do an export of the recovery agent certs and restored on the 2008 server but the user still cannot read the files.
There must be a Cert buried somewhere that has been missed?
It would seem like we should be able to import the correct Cert onto the 2008 server so the user can read these older files.
