RE: Backup of EFS Recovery Certificate in Digital Locker
I have the same problem. I tried to solve it with Microsoft support as I
have the 90 days free support. They tried to blame other software and
recomended to uninstall Norton antivirus. Today I backuped whole system,
formated discs, installed only Windows Ultimate and tried the feature. The
problem is still present.
Sorry I am not helpful. I just want to prevent others from spending many
hours by testing unusefull suggestions from support.
