[Bacula-devel] Feature Request: Backup and Restore of Windows Encrypted Files through raw encryption functions


Item 1: Backup and Restore of Windows Encrypted Files through raw
encryption functions

  Origin: Michael Mohr, SAG
  
  Date:   22 February 2008
  
  Status:

  What:   Make it possible to backup and restore Encypted Files from and
          to Windows systems
          without the need to decrypt it by using the raw encryption
functions API 
          (see: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa363783.aspx)

          that is provided for that reason by Microsoft.
          If a file ist encrypted could be examined by evaluating the 
          FILE_ATTRIBUTE_ENCRYTED flag of the GetFileAttributes
function.

  Why:    Without the usage of this interface the fd-daemon running
          under the system account can't read encypted Files because
          the key needed for the decrytion is missed by them. As a
result 
          actually encrypted files are not backed up
          by bacula and also no error is shown while missing these
files.

  Notes:  ./.
