    There shouldn't be any problem(s), unless you go in a delete the user
    account that encrypted the file AND the Administrator's (default
    recovery agent) account. Other then that SP2 should work fine and

  3. Martina;
    There should be no problem opening encrypted files after installing SP-2.
    But you should always have back-ups of encrypted data.

    Is your encrypted data important?
    What is your plan if the hard drive has a catastrophic mechanical failure?
