Encrypt Offline Files
I'm planning on implementing Windows 7 with offline files on some teaching staff replacement laptops this summer. I know how to setup up the group policy etc. but I would like it so that the offline files are encrpted.
I can see the policy for this but have a few questions:
If I encrypt the files what happens if there is a problem - is there a domain decrypt certificate I need to create?
If the files are encrypted, I assume they can't be accessed via bartpe,winpe boot discs?
I know in XP this feature required admin rights. Is this still the case in 7. If so this is a non-starter, Teachers with admin rights ehhh!
Is there a microsoft guide to how to do this on a domain? I've only found one for doing it standalone.

you need to configure this in the group policy..here's a link how to do this for a Windows 2003 domain..Group policy : Encryption of offline files | Offline Files in Windows XP, Windows 7
I think it would be mostly similar in server 2008 too..
