    By default?

    Looking at a bootable password recovery disk, but says if EFS is used it will make these files no longer accessible. Didn't know if Win 2k3 Server may use it by default as a security measure?

    edit: this is for my employer btw, not trying to haxor anything..

    EFS is always available, but files are only encrypted if you tell them to be encrypted. If you're going to use encrypted files on a file server, you better have a domain set up, or else encrypted files will only be accessible on the computer they were created on.
