If you use it, make sure you export a key and keep it in a safe place.!!!

If you were to backup the files, and re-install windows, you will not be able to access the files ever again.

If anyone knows different, please let me know!!

EFS is more for protection against users who have physical access to the computer, rather than over the Internet.

That doesn't mean you can't use it, but if you have a good firewall, updated Anti Virus, and spyware utilities, no hacker would be able to do a thing, no matter how good they were.

You can read more about EFS [url=********support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;223316][b]HERE[/b] and [url=***********.winntmag.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=5387&Key=Internals][b]HERE[/b].
