Looking to find a way to access encrypted files after an operating system installation.
Some detail:

3 drives are involved:
- a USB external with the EFS
- The old windows XP boot/system drive that created the EFS on the USB drive (this is now a slave drive)
- The new Windows 7 boot/system drive (that cannot access the EFS, but has full permissions to the USB drive)

I am looking for advice on how to get access to the EFS on the USB drive (copying certificates etc).
