I have a number of folders on my hard disk drive that have been encrypted using the built-in Windows XP folder encryption.
How can I get a list of all of the locations that have been encrypted? Search doesn't seem to have an option for it.
How can I find all the encrypted files in Windows XP?
You can use any of the following 3 methods to locate encrypted files:
1. Use the CIPHER command.
2. Change the color that Windows Explorer uses to display the files:
Double-click My Computer and use Tools / Folder Options.
Select the View tab.
Check the Show encrypted or compressed NTFS files in color box and press OK.
3. Have Windows Explorer display the Attributes column:
Double-click My Computer and press the View menu.
Select Details and press Choose Details.
Check the items that you want to see, including Attributes, and press OK.
NOTE: You can use Tools / Folder Options / View to Apply to All Folders.
... or do yourself a big favour and get Total Commander as suggested by Nik. :)
Commands > Search > Genaral tab
open the Advanced tab, check Attributes and clear all boxes except Encrypted
hit Start Search
