Loss of password protection

Hi people,
I had a bunch of Excel files that were burned onto a CD and sent to a client. All the files were password protected so that nobody could edit them. The client contacted the person who sent them the CD and told them that they had copied the files from the CD to somewhere else (hard drive? network drive? do not really know) and that the new copies of the files are no longer password protected. I cannot seem to recreate this unless I do a SAVE AS (which I am sure the client did not do because there were a huge number of files).

Does anyone have any idea what could have caused this and what I can do to prevent it? Thanks in advance for your help.
