What is File Protection or Encrypted File and Folder?

File protection automatically encrypts the files in your My Documents folder so that only you can open them. Encrypted files include all Microsoft Office* (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), Microsoft Money*, and Intuit Quicken* files.

Note Intel has removed the File Protection feature from Intel® Anti-Theft Service due to its incompatibility with the new Microsoft Windows* integrated encryption solution.

An integrated data protection (Pervasive Device Encryption) is now available with Windows* 8.1. It is enabled out of the box and new consumer devices are automatically encrypted and protected when using a Microsoft* account.
