The NTBACKUP utility that comes with every Windows 2000 server and desktop is capable of backing up an encrypted file and then restoring it to a different computer. Because the new NTBACKUP in Windows 2000 permits backing up files to a file as well as tape, you can use it for a quick and simple vehicle to transport encrypted files to the recovery computer.
You will need Backup Operator privileges to run NTBACKUP.
