I tried to unset Encryption attributes even with Enterprise Admin account but in vain, Please friends tell me that how is this possible that I'll able to remove ecryption attributes from my foler.

Hi,

When you encrypt files in Win 2000, they are actually encrypted using a private key that is generated for you.

It is maintained by the OS and when you re-installed, I'd say you lost this key.

Here is an article on the Windows 2000 EFS (Encrypting File System)

http://www.win2000mag.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=5006

(remove spaces from above URL)

And here is the final part of that article...

"When companies implement EFS wisely, EFS provides great data security. Careless management of encryption keys can be damaging, resulting in the loss of valuable information and the exposure of confidential data. To successfully deploy EFS, you must create proper backup and recovery plans and carefully manage encryption keys."

Sorry,
Tim.

Make yourself a recovery agent. Just add yourself to that group. That should do it.
