We have a customer folder that needs encryption, so we setup EFS encryption
thru Win2003 server. According to what I have read so far, only the user
who created the encrypted folder/file can decrypt it. Is there a method to
allow a group to decrypt/read an encrypted folder/file under this
environment. If any changes to this need be made or any advice, please do


Motivate them train them care about them and make winners out of them we 
know that if we treat our employees correctly they'll treat the customers 
right and if customers are treated right they'll come back. - J Marriot, Jr.
