As long as you keep regular full backups, EFS is fine. The trouble arises if
you have to reinstall Windows, as the EFS keys will be overwritten and the
EFS volume will become useless. If you don't keep complete backups, uses PGP

Does anyone have an opinion of Windows 2k's EFS (Encrypting File System)
vs., let's say, PGP?  I'd appreciate any input.  Thanks.
