Introduction It may be useful as an administrator to periodically determine which computers in your organization have implemented EFS. For example, if you have not implemented a formal data recovery policy but find that 80% of your users are implementing EFS, you might decide to implement recovery procedures. Although there is no way to determine if files are currently encrypted, there are registry keys that are present if EFS has ever been implemented.

Procedure To determine if EFS has been used on a computer, perform the following steps:

1. Log on as Administrator.

2. Click Start, click Run, type regedit.exe and then press ENTER.

3. In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following path and look for the presence of the EFS key.

HKEY_CURRENTUSER\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\ CurrentVersion\
