What EFSCONFIGUPDATE Does

  • By default the application will update the user's EFS configuration (the per-user CertificateHash registry value) with the first valid non-self-signed EFS certificate that it finds.
  • If no such certificates are found, the application will exit.
  • If the CertificateHash value is already configured with the selected certificate, the application will exit.
  • The application creates a log of all significant activity that it performs, to give some visibility into how it selects a suitable EFS certificate, whether it succeeds and why.
    • This log file is found under %APPDATA%\EFSCertConfigUpdate\ and is named "EFSCertConfigUpdateTraceLog.txt".
