    Local folders. I'm not worried about them unencrypting. Its just a
    requirement from a customer for a project we are working on for them.

    A local or network folder?

    If local then there i am not aware of simple setting for this but you
    could write a script which is a machine startup script and enforces the
    local directory encryption. You could make that script execute on
    specific computers which are filtered via either: WMI, OU or Security
    Group during computer startup.
    But if your users are local admins then i think they can un-encrypt.
    Anything below local Admin does not allow them to overwite.

    If network folder than make that folder part of your Offline files
    hierarchy and there is a GPO setting to force encryption.
    Again, if they are local admins then they can overwrite.
