Advanced EFS Data Recovery is an advanced tool that you can use to remove EFS (encrypting file system) protection from various files. It was mainly designed for advanced users, as it requires knowledge regarding Windows encryption standards. This program requires few system resources and it’s supported by almost all Windows versions (on both 32- and 64-bit systems.)

It definitely should be mentioned that Advanced EFS Data Recovery is quite expensive. But if you can ignore the price tag, you will surely find this program very useful. Its graphical user-interface is very organized. The program will scan for EFS related files, as well as for encrypted files. For each category, it will provide you with detailed information regarding those files, and offer you the option to decrypt them if possible.

Also, this tool comes with a wizard that takes you through the process of finding information necessary for decryption, and the actual decryption. This feature is useful especially for less experienced users that don’t posses a lot of knowledge in this area.

Advanced EFS Data Recovery doesn’t offer access to many settings. The only things that you are allowed to modify are the log file name and its size. Also, you are able to configure the program to run at system startup if needed.
