Thanks I'll pass that along to the vendor, apparently I am getting mixed
information.  

Thanks again!

Unless I'm not searching correctly, this is not yet documented in their
KB.

I have confirmed this issue, and opened a case with Symantec Platinum
Support. They are aware of the issue and will keep us updated on when a
fix is available. I requested that they document the issue in their
knowledge base, as obviously it is a serious problem.

Excluding EFS encrypted folders from auto-protect will prevent the
problem from occurring, but I don't see any way to recover the files
since as far as EFS is concerned, they are decrypted.
