The encryption and decryption of NTFS formatting problem

NTFS is a WindowsNT above provides security, reliability, advanced file system. Win2000 and WinXP, NTFS also provides features such as file and folder permissions, encryption, disk quotas, and compression to the advanced features.
, encrypted files or folders
Open Windows Explorer, click the file or folder you want to encrypt, and then click "Properties". In the "General" tab, click "Advanced". Select "Encrypt contents to secure data" check box is selected in the encryption process, the
would also like to note the following five points:
1. to open "Windows Explorer", click the "Start → Programs → Accessories", and then click the "Windows Explorer".
2. only encrypted NTFS partitions files and folders on a volume, FAT partition files and folders on a volume is invalid.
3. compressed files or folders can be encrypted. If you encrypt a compressed file or folder, the file or folder will be uncompressed.
4. cannot be marked as "system" properties file, and is located in the SystemRoot directory structure of files could not be encrypted.
5. When you encrypt a folder, you are asked whether you want to encrypt the folder. If you select Yes, it's subfolders will be encrypted, all added into the folder of files and subfolders will be added automatically when encrypted.
II, to decrypt a file or folder
Open Windows Explorer, right-click the encrypted file or folder, and then click "Properties". In the "General" tab, click "Advanced". Clear the "Encrypt contents to secure data" check box.
Similarly, in using the decryption process should pay attention to the following questions:
1. to open "Windows Explorer", click the "Start → Programs → Accessories", and then click the "Windows Explorer".
2. When you decrypt a folder, the system will ask whether you want to simultaneously all folders files and subfolders to decrypt. If you choose to decrypt only the folder, in the folder to be decrypted encrypted files and folders remain encrypted. However, in the decrypted folder create new files and folders will not be automatically encrypted.
the above is to use file encryption and decryption methods. Following some problems you may encounter during use, special instructions here:
1. Advanced button can not be used
cause: the encrypting file system (EFS) can only handle files and folders on NTFS file system volumes. If you attempt to encrypt a file or folder on a FAT or FAT32 volume, the Advanced button does not appear in the properties of the file or folder.
volume is converted to NTFS with convert utility volumes. Open a command prompt. Type: Convert [drive]/FS:NTFS (drive is the drive letter of the destination drive)
2. When you open an encrypted file, it shows "access denied" message
cause: the encrypting file system (EFS) using a public key certificate to encrypt the file, the private key associated with the certificate is not available on this computer.
to find an appropriate certificate's private key, and import the private key to your computer and using the Certificates snap-in on this computer.
3. users based on NTFS to encrypt files, reinstall the system of encrypted files cannot be accessed after the solution of the problem (Note: reloading Win2000/XP be sure to back up your encryption certificate users):
to encrypt the user logged on to the computer. Click the "start → run", type "MMC" and then click "OK". In the "Control Panel" menu, click "Add/Remove snap", then click "add".
"separate management units", click the "certificates" and then click "add". Click the "my user account", then click "Finish". Click "close" and then click "OK".
, double-click "certificate-current user", double-click "personal", and then double-click "certificate". Click the "intended purpose" column shows the "encrypted files" certificate. Right-click the certificate, point to "all tasks", then click "export".
follow the Certificate Export Wizard instructions to the certificate and the associated private key is exported as a PFX file.
4. save the certificate
to the PFX file is saved well. After reloading system in which users simply double-click the certificate file, import the private certificate can access the NTFS system, by the original of the certificate the user an encrypted folder.
Windows 98 encrypted folder:

in one, the folder's properties in the "Windows Explorer" window, right-click the folder you want to encrypt, and click "Properties", select the "hidden" check box. In the registry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\

Shut down and restart the "Windows Explorer", you will see "C:\RECYCLED" has a desktop.ini file in the folder. Copied to the folder you want to encrypt the file and the folder is set to "read-only" attribute.
