The DEFAULT recovery agent is the Administrator, on the other hand you always
can to decrypt the data from the userX login like that userX; So crack the
password or overwrite it off-line (the same for the delegated recovery
overwriting the pw offline will work with efs on w2k.
it will not work with winxp/2003: you cant access any efs-data after
resetting the password offline.
you'll have to crack the usesrs or the admins pw and either logon
interactively or export their keys to get access to the efs-encrypted data.
