Explanation: Encryption prevents unauthorized users from interpreting the data in files. Even if a user were able to gain access by booting to an operating system he would not be able to open an encrypted file or use brute-force methods of reading data on a disk sector by sector, the data is still unintelligible if the user doesn’t have the decryption key. Windows has two built-in methods for encrypting data on a disk: Encrypting File System (EFS) and BitLocker Drive Encryption.
