Windows Home Directory Encryption? 121

Posted by timothy
from the we-see-you-anonymous-reader dept.
An anonymous reader writes "Home directory encryption has been available on Linux for a while now, and it is definitely a smart, useful feature as it is not usually necessary to encrypt the entire drive, just the private documents and software profiles in the home directory. Windows is getting better about keeping everything that needs to be private in the user's home folder. Is there a similar solution for Windows to securely, and preferably transparently, encrypt the home directory only? (Preferably open source so that the code is available for peer review)."

It's not so hard to lift yourself by your bootstraps once you're off the ground. -- Daniel B. Luten
