Windows 10 Encrypting File System creating Certificates with Expriation dates that are before Start dates RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Windows 10 Pro on a new Dell laptop. The Dell setup process crashed. Dell staff said Windows 10 had been corrupted and they supposedly corrected it. But now I find the Encrypting File System (EFS) is not working, generating Encryption Certificates with expiration dates that are before the start dates. How to correct this?

  • So check the system date and time are correct. That can cause issue with certificates if wrong.

    Where are you checking the date, in MMC Certificates? What date is it showing? If I encrypt a folder the certificate is set to expire in 2116.
