Encrypting File System - Definition

EFS is an abbreviation for Encrypting File System. As Encryption is the process of disguising a message or data in such a way as to hide its substance, EFS is a feature in Windows that enables users to encrypt files and folders on an NTFS volume disk to keep them safe from access by intruders. Encryption is actually transparent to the user that encrypted the file. This means that you do not have to manually decrypt the encrypted file before you can use it. You can open and change the file as you normally do.
