Can you identify them with a file extension?

Answer #2    Answered By: Elisha Abbott     Answered On: Jun 06

By 'encrypted', Sharon was probably referring to Word or Excel
password-protected files. These would be files  that are not part of
Windows Rights Management. The content would not be indexable by MOSS
Search (not sure about the metadata).

We would also be interested in preventing them from being added to
document libraries.

We are using
EFS (Microsoft's Encrypted Filing System) to encrypt all desktop
computer documents.

Answer #4    Answered By: Caleb Gordon     Answered On: Jun 06

We are encrypting all desktop files  using EFS (Microsoft's
Encryption Filing System). Once encrypted, a user can drag their
folder into a document library using Explorer View, a web folder, or
a mapped SharePoint folder .... anything using web dav protocol ...
will maintain the encryption.

This is a huge stumbling block right now.

To answer your question, when you look at an encrypted  file on a
local hard drive, the filename and extension remain the same
meaning, if the file was test.doc it will remain test.doc. The only
visible difference is the color of the file listing.
