What happens when accessing encrypted data?

If the user does not have the required key for that particular file in his encryption policy, he is then not permitted to access the encrypted data. The user is not able to read, copy, move, rename, or in any other way interact with the encrypted file.

If the user owns the key used to encrypt the file the user is able to access it, even if there is no encryption rule in the user’s encryption profile for this file (resp. an encryption rule)
