• Encrypt Folder On Windows 10


    • We need to pay closer attention than ever before towards encryption tools and anything designed to protect our privacy. With the right tools, keeping our data safe is easy. There are always some files in the Win10 system that you don't want others to see. One way is to hide the files. But this is not safe, many people will let hidden files show up. So we have to encrypt the folder. How does the Windows 10 operating system encrypt folders? Let's take a look at the details of Win10's method of encrypting folders without tools.
    • Some Windows operating systems also come with Encrypting File System (EFS), which lets you encrypt any kind of file, as well as whole folders and subfolders. Note, however, that EFS is only available for Windows 10 Pro, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8 Pro or Windows 8 Enterprise. Users with a Home edition of Windows will need to use either Office Suite encryption or a third-party solution, such as idooFileEcnryption, TrueCrypt, VeraCrypt or 7-Zip.
    • Before using EFS to encrypt files, you must keep in mind that you can access encrypted files only if you are logged in with an account that uses encrypted files. Other user accounts will not be able to access it. So be sure to remember or write down the password, otherwise your files will remain locked forever.
    • Steps to encrypt the file:
    • 1. First log in to the Win10 system using your own account.
    • 2. Right click on the folder you want to encrypt, select Properties and open, then click the Advanced button.
    • 3. Check the "Encrypt contents to ensure data" option, click OK.
    • advanced attributes
    • 4. Go back to the property interface and then click OK. Then the system will pop up the backup, we click, or prompt and click after restarting Win10.
    • back up your file encryption certificate and key
    • 5. Back up the file encryption certificate and select "Backup now".
    • protect the private key by using a password
    • 6. You need to set a password when backing up, otherwise you can't backup it, click Next.
    • 7. Finally, export a certificate file, this file needs to be saved by yourself.
    • Summary: After the above settings, although we use this account to log in and do not need a password, use other accounts, we can not open these files. There are also certificates we have to keep in important places, otherwise you will not be able to open these files after reinstalling the system or changing accounts.
    • If you think Windows encryption tools are not good enough, try some third-party encryption software. In fact, the right third-party tool is better than EFS because it offers more options.
