Hi Wanda:

You should be able to use the System Account to backup encrypted files.  I
just did a test here:
Create encrypted file with usera
Try to READ with userb (access denied)
Backup and restore with userb (userb has rights to the file) works fine
File is still encrypted after restore (userb cannot read, usera can)
Backed up another encrypted file via the scheduler
Restored file
File is still encrypted

I am running W2K SP1, TSM 4.12.12.

Basically an encrypted file prevents another user from reading the file but
that user can still backup, copy, delete the file etc, as long as they have
