Encrypted Files behaviour RRS feed

  • Question


    Syncing encrypted files with a thumbdrive using Vista Home Premium fails.


    Home Premium's EFS capabilitys have been neutered, granted. However it is capable of reading and updating (not creating) encrypted files. I can confirm that updating the encrypted file works manually (copy-over).


    It seems that Sync Toy does not copy the existing file over the top, it perhaps deletes the target and then attempts to copy again? Regardless - this means I cannot keep an EFS thumbdrive and sync it with my desktop (Ultimate) and laptop (Home).
