ok i was expirimenting with efs and exporting/importing certificates when i ran into a snag. i have a computer set up with both a transparant access and a recovery agent account. when i connect to the encrypted network share i keep getting access denied errors every time i try to open or copy an encrypted file. even when the accounts on the remote computer have all the proper certificates. however if i pull the harddrive out of the computer and directly connect it to the remote computer the recovery account can read and decrypt all the files that were denied over the share. how do i set it up so my recovery agent and other authorized accounts can access the encrypted file over the network??

heres another strange thing. if i map the share on the remote computer using the fileserver's administrator account i still cant read them. and the administrator account can access encrypted files madeby anyone as per the local policy
