Decrypt files protected with the Encrypting File System (EFS). Advanced EFS Data Recovery decrypts files protected with EFS in Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003/2008, Vista and Windows 7. The recovery is possible even when you transfer a protected disk into a different PC, reformat system partition, or when some encryption keys are tampered with.
Microsoft Encrypting File System (EFS) is a part of NTFS, and is available in many current versions of Windows. The EFS performs transparent encryption of files, enabling the users to effectively protect data against unauthorized access even from those who gain physical access to the hard disk or the computer with the encrypted files.
Losing access to EFS-protected files is as easy as re-installing Windows over the old version, re-formatting system partition, or transferring the disk with encrypted data into a new PC.
Advanced EFS Data Recovery effectively decrypts the EFS-protected files even when all other methods to recover encrypted data fail. Scanning the hard disk in low-level mode and matching the patterns sector by sector allows Advanced EFS Data Recovery to recover the EFS-encrypted files even if some of the encryption keys are lost.
Advanced EFS Data Recovery helps to recover from system administration errors such as deleting user accounts and profiles, missing or misconfigured data recovery authorities, incorrect transfers of user accounts between domains, or moving hard disks with encrypted data between computers.
