5.1. Enabling Encrypting File System in Windows XP

This exercise demonstrates how to create a folder on your system and enable it for use as an encrypted folder using the integrated Encrypting File System in Windows XP. Keep in mind that although this lab focuses on Windows XP, the procedure is the same when using Windows 2000, which also supports EFS.

Remember that to enable EFS on Windows 2000 or Windows XP, you must have at least one partition formatted as an NTFS partition for EFS to work. FAT32 partitions lack the security features EFS requires.
