See ME255742 - "Methods for Recovering Encrypted Data Files"
The user has used EFS to encrypt part of their profile content e.g. Documents on their desktop. The system is unable to copy the content as it does not posses access to either the user or recovery agent keys. May happen in environments where the Default Recovery Policy has not benn defined or the data was encrypted on an alternative system. Use the XP version of the Cipher tool with the /N /U switches on the profile path to identify the encrypted files. Then use the Efsinfo tool to identify encrypter and recovery agent - decrypt the data.
