View Full Version : setting a recovery agent in xp workgroup

24-03-2007, 10:16 AM
I would like to set a recovery agent to access encrypted files set by another user. This machine is not part of a network. I have given the intended recovery agent (joe) a certificate by encypting a file. However as far as I can tell I then need to request a Recovery Agent certificate, unfortunately at this stage I am told that the computer cannot access Active Directory (as I am not on a domain).

Anyone got any ideas what I need to do? Everywhere I search tends to talk about active directory, so I'm not sure if its possible, tho it should be.

Thanks in advance for any help.
