Recover Encrypted Files from NTFS Partition

Encrypted data recovery service is required when you are unable to access the files, folders, or forgot your password. To recover encrypted files from an NTFS partition, you need to understand how the encrypted file system process works, and how the Encryption File System (EFS) encrypts files from Windows' NTFS file system.

An overview of Encrypted file system
An operating system determines how files/folders are named, stored, and organized in a computer or a laptop. A file system is a part of an Operating System whose task is to set permissions on files and folders. With the encrypted data system, you can enable security regions. It helps to prevent third-party unauthorized access. If any unauthorized person accessed the files and folders due to incorrect configuration, NTFS permission, the files, and folder would be encrypted. And the situation could be resolved by the authorized user or the file recovery service provider. Also, EFS secures confidential corporate data from unauthorized access.

Some of the most common causes of data loss on encrypted media include:
•    Physical Hard Drive Failure
•    Data Corruption
•    Bad Sectors
•    RAID Rebuild Failure
•    Accidental Partition Deletion
•    Accidental File Deletion
•    Encrypted Partition Header Issues
•    Accidental Overwrite
•    Virus Damage
•    Encrypted Data is Not Accessible on New Machine

Why Encrypted File System and NTFS Partitions?
To ensure strong encryption, EFS utilizes industry standard algorithms and public key cryptography. With this, your encrypted files system will always be confidential. Authentication and NTFS file permissions are engaged in protecting your confidential data; you can use EFS to add a layer of security. This would prevent data when hackers gain full access to data stored on the computer, the data located in files are secured due to EFS encryption. An unauthorized person would not be able to open your encrypted file.
After a user is logged on, NTFS partition enables the security issues. NTFS permission controls the user access and groups. You can set a particular user access level for each file and folders hosted on NTFS partitions. It depends on your choice - you can either allow or deny access to the NTFS file system. The NTFS file system also includes other features such as encryption, disk quotas, file compression, mounted drives, NTFS change journal, and multiple data streams. You can also store Macintosh files on NTFS partitions. Also, NTFS supports local security.
