    be careful:

    overwriting the pw offline will work with efs on w2k.
    it will not work with winxp/2003: you cant access any efs-data after
    resetting the password offline.

    you'll have to crack the usesrs or the admins pw and either logon
    interactively or export their keys to get access to the efs-encrypted data.
