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 agent).

be careful:

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.
