Those are encrypted files. If it is company policy to have those files encrypted it's OK, if not... you are in trouble (somebody else encrypted those)...

Thanks Predrag Jovic,

they have just been emailed across to me in a .zip format by a 3rd party in order to be compliant for card transactions.

I have contacted this 3rd party to ask them why they appear to be encrypted.

I have attempted to just open the files, save then open, copy out, but no luck.

Got nothing with luck. :)
You should be able to open files only if they export EFS certificate and then you import it to your PC.
