Access Shared Folders from a Windows XP–Based PC

Encrypting File System

EFS technologies are available only in Windows Vista Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate. If you have Home Premium, you can skip this part!

EFS is a technology that stores data in an encrypted format. EFS doesn’t require anything from you except that you turn it on. Files that are encrypted will be encrypted before saving them to the hard drive, and they will be decrypted when you need to work with them. To encrypt a folder or a file, right-click it, click Properties, and click the Advanced button. Select Encrypt Contents To Secure Data.
