    I have an encrypted file that I cannot access anymore - access denied. I am
    listed as the 'Users who can transparently access this file', and I am a
    Domain and Enterprise Admin.

    I changed my password last week, and it seems to have occurred after that.
    Also, I have restored the file from months ago to a new location, and the
    file is still encrypted and access denied.

  2. Do you have a copy of the EFS cert used to encrypt file?

    Do you have a copy of the EFS recovery cert? (This is a dedicated cert or
    possibly the user that installed AD)

    Last but not least, assuming the EFS cert used to encrypt file is corrupted,
    do you have a way of recovering that certificate?
