WinXP EFS: is it compatible with Win7 EFS and Win10 EFS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have a WinXP Pro box that is able to work just fine with EFS files created on WinXP. Those files can also be processed on Win7 or Win10 boxes I have.  It seems that Win7 and Win10 EFS is fully interoperable as well.

    But the WinXP box can't seem to work with EFS files created on the Win7 or Win10 boxes.

    Does anyone have an example of a WinXP box that is able to work with EFS files from the newer OSs?

    Is there anything tricky I need to do on the WinXP box to enable this?  I've installed the certificates and done the Group Policy Editor thing.

    Thanks in advance for any tips you can provide.

    David
