I am using Windows 2000.

I log in with administrator privileges.

When I try to encrypt a folder I always get an error message saying it can't be done.

To encrypt a folder I Right Click on it and choose Properties from the drop-down menu.
Then I Left Click on the Advanced button near the bottom.
In the Advanced Attributes dialog box I check "Encrypt contents to sercure data" and then click OK.Then OK again in the remaining Properties dialog box.

This brings up the Confirm Attribute Changes dialog box and I amy either check "Apply changes to this folder only" or to "Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files."

The error message I always get is:

Error Applying Attributes
An error occurred applying attributes to the file:
C:\Documents and Settings, etc

Access is denied

[Ignore] [Ignore All] [Retry] [Cancel]

Can someone see what might be the problem?
