What happens when an authorised user tries to unencrypt a file?

The system software or third party software validates the authorization (the security token for the current account), and then decrypts a key that is tied to the user's account using the supplied password, and then applies that key to the file's contents, ultimately decrypting the file. The key is encrypted with the user's password, and can not be decrypted without this password. For this reason, using the "reset password" function without supplying their old password will render all of their encrypted files unrecoverable. This can be prevented by having an account designated as a recovery agent, or by backing up the keys to a server or disk.
