Release Notes

Based on jeoff's request, this release enables a capability in EFSCertConfigUpdater so that the application can limit the updated EFS certificate to choose from among only those that are enrolled from a "version 2" certificate template. (This has the benefit of enabling the organization to ensure that they have a backup of the active EFS certificate for the user.)

To use this new parameter, you can call it one of two ways:
  1. EFSCertConfigUpdater.exe /migratev1
  2. EFSCertConfigUpdater.exe /m1

(Note: other parameters show up if you use "/?", but these have not been implemented yet.)

I've uploaded two packages, depending on your needs:
  1. EFS Certificate Configuration Installer v1.2.msi, which contains an installer that deploys the Release build of v1.2
  2. EFSCertConfigUpdater v1.2 -, which contains a Debug version of the tool (along with matching debug symbols), in case you have issues and you'd like to report as much detail as possible about the error)

Reviews for this release

This is an absolutely fantastic tool and solves the fundamental design problem with Encrypting File System - that new EFS certificates are not used automatically when they are enrolled. With this, my encrypted files are never messed up again with multiple certificates and I don't need to use EFS recovery tools to recovery lost EFS keys.
