Chapter 3. Manipulating Files, Folders, ... > Encrypting Files with cipher

Encrypting Files with cipher

You can encrypt files on NTFS using the cipher command. These files are encrypted using the Encrypting File System (EFS) feature of NTFS. The two primary switches you use are /e to encrypt files and /d to decrypt them. When files are encrypted, Windows Explorer displays them with green text.

Note

Files can be compressed or encrypted, however, they cannot be compressed and encrypted.
