What I want is to create a single EFS cert for use on multiple computers to encrypt/decrypt files.
I have two computers, PC1 and PC2, and when I try to copy PC1's encrypted files to PC2, these files can't be opened on PC2.
I've exported the certificate from PC1 [
user1-cert], importing it on PC2, and I'm now able to open encrypted files from PC1 on PC2, but when I try to encrypt any other file on PC2, they are not encrypted with
user1-cert; instead, Windows is creating a new certificate on PC2 [
I've tried deleting
user2-cert, but when I try to encrypt any new file on PC2, Windows is creating a new certificate and encrypting the file with it, preventing decryption on PC1.
