How do I harden Windows EFS Encryption for specific folders ?

Hi there folks,


I am interested in encrypting specific folders inside a drive rather than using a 256 bit Bitlocker full encryption…

I can do it with the EFS certificate from the file properties, but it appears crackable and I’m not even a professional pentester.


Is there a specific folder encryption method I can use on Windows that is better, and if not, how do I harden the EFS function, do you know any cool registry keys or group policies to harden it against forensic tools ?


Thanks a lot for any tip
