Password Encrypted SharePoint Files
When opening password encrypted files in SharePoint and making changes, once you click save in Word or Excel SharePoint then strips away the metadata and changes the location where the file was when you opened it.
This then give you and error in Excel that the document no longer exist.
Can this be fixed in SharePoint that it does not strip away metadata once you click save.
SharePoint usage would be far less annoying if this didn't happen. Wondering if the IRM / Azure Information Protection implementation has any implications for getting this fixed.

Finance teams need this as well - typically when our files have HR data in them.
We publish the files to people that don't have access to the site and thus the published file needs to be password protected.

HR Team needs to password protect sensitive files, that is why this is required.
