    We set up here a new windows 2003 server (without ANY problems ;) ).
    we put in this server a hard disk from a windows 2000 server (the drive has data on it).
    now we have the problem that we can't access some data on this hard drive.
    (we have administration rights on this server).

    but some files are ok...and we can access it.

    on this files that we can't access we can't also see under properties the security tab!?!?

    can someone tell me how to access this data?

    What happened is Windows encrypted those files.
