In that directory, there's a mix of EFS-encrypted files, and just normal files. Is there a simple way to decrypt everything?

Ciphere.exe /d /s *.*

The /d is to decrypt.
The /s is to do that directory and subdirectories.

typo in the file name. it's "cipher.exe", not "ciphere.exe" (sorry I have no editing privileges) – jitbit Jun 3 '14 at 10:47

Easiest method I can think of - Go to Explorer, customize the fields to show an encryption flag then simply sort by this and highlight the encrypted files, then right click to properties and unencrypt them.
