I use XP PRO. Service Pack 2
I only have one profile on my computer & it has admistrator privalges. Now a folder in this profile when encrypted, still shows me the contents of the folder and when i open a file it also shows me the file. i have followoed the instructions on this site - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q308989&sd=tech
I have also done these steps -
"Confirm Attribute Changes dialog box that appears, use one of the following steps:
If you want to encrypt only the folder, click Apply changes to this folder only, and then click OK.
If you want to encrypt the existing folder contents along with the folder, click Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files, and then click OK."
Still after encryption why is the folder accesible ? I also wnat to know this - If i create another profile then all data pertaining to the a different profile will not be accesible. So encryption is not even needed. So what exactly does encryption do. The very purpose of encryption accoring to me is that others showul not be able to see my data.
If i do not have multiple profiles setup will encryption help ? And encryption is only used for data of a different profile to be inaccebilbly then why use encryption becuase data of a different profile is not accesible in anway.
Please explain !
