EFS wont encrypt the system files. The solution is to simply create a
separate partition for the data files and enable EFS on it. Leave the
system partition clear for speed.
The Biometric access control should not be a factor. If it works with
Windows 2000, it will work with EFS. I haven't run across one yet that
