Hi
I have a folder-structure with files subfolders,etc. the entire structure is
encrypted with efs (winxpsp2). with "cipher.exe /d /s:c:\enc\" i can decrypt
the folders and subfolders BUT the files in it are still encrypted??!!!

how can i decrypt folders and files? is this possible with cipher.exe? if
not are there alternatives?

thx

first thx 4 all responses ;) 

i did not understand the description of parameter /a correctly. /a mean all
files. the description is confusing.

Solution: cipher /a /d /s:c:\temp\enc\
