Message:Service encountered encrypted file in a replicated folder
   
Explanation

The DFS Replication service encountered a file encrypted using the Encrypting File System (EFS). The file will not be replicated because the DFS Replication service does not support the replication of files encrypted with EFS.

Cause

The DFS Replication service does not support the replication of files encrypted by EFS. If a previously-replicated file is later encrypted with EFS, copies of the unencrypted file are deleted from the replicated folders.

   
User Action

To continue replicating the file, decrypt it. To prevent this error if the file should be encrypted and removed from replication, move the encrypted file out of the replicated folder.
