  • Hi Dilshan,

    I think some of your questions have already been answered elsewhere, but here are the answers for others who might have similar asks:

    1. This was covered in a separate thread: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/rms/thread/72275800-e6b5-409c-909e-f9a8f98a2a6f/

    2. Previously, the only way to do this was programmatically using the IpcIsFileEncrypted() method which is part of the AD RMS SDK. This is what is stated here and is still the official word on the street:


    That said, if you are interested in trying out our new RMS file management cmdlets that are in preview (see this recent post on the AD RMS Team blog), there is a cmdlet called Get-RMSFileStatus that is exactly the right tool for non-programmers to use in identifying RMS protection status on files. I would suggest signing up for and checking out the cmdlets preview.

    3. The IP team is also working on an Information Protection viewer application that is in beta  that will use icons and modify/overlay a "lock" image onto existing familiar icons for file types. Stay tuned to the AD RMS blog  (http://blogs.technet.com/rms) for when that is available for wider evaluation and release.
