Creating a recovery agent
Decide which user you wish to
use as a data-recovery agent. It is recommended that you use the built in
'administrator' account. Login as this account. Go to 'start\run' and type 'cmd' to bring up the command prompt.
Type 'cipher /r:(pick a
filename) to create a digital certificate for a recovery agent. You will be
prompted to set a password. This creates two files in the 'my documents' folder
of the current user. Be aware that these files can be used by anyone to become a
data-recovery agent, so it is wise to remove them after we are finished this
Go to 'start\run' and type
Go to 'certificates - current
user\personal' right click and choose 'all tasks' then 'import' Click
On the 'file to import' page,
click 'browse' then change the 'files of type' dropdown box to .pfx
Select the filename you
created with the 'cipher /r:' command. Type the password. Check the 'mark this
key as exportable' box.
Click 'next.' Choose the
'Automatically Select The Certificate Store Based On The Type Of Certificate'
option. Click 'next,' then 'finish.' Close the certificates
