To copy an encrypted file or folder

  1. Open Windows Explorer.

  2. Click the encrypted file or folder that you want to copy.

  3. On the Edit menu, click Copy.

  4. Open the folder or disk where you want to store the copy.

  5. On the Edit menu, click Paste.


  • To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.

  • An encrypted file or folder is decrypted if you copy it to a volume that is not an NTFS file system volume. The exception to this is when copying to a WebDAV folder on a server.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
