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?
