Re: [Bacula-devel] [Bacula-users] WindowsXP EFS - encrypting file system - How can I backup efs-encrypted files?


Hello,

Currently the Bacula Win32 client has no code to handle EFS, so this requires 
some implementation (i.e. it is not just a bug).  To get something 
implemented, you should follow our Feature Request procedure.  Please see: 
www.bacula.org -> Feature Request

Best regards,

Kern
