Hi,
I have implemented EFS on domain controller and deployed GPO to computer, now every AD user should be able to use EFS. However, I cannot find any document to share encrypted folder to AD group, is there anyone done this before?

Thanks for the info, this is for sharing users only but not group. is EFS supported sharing to user group in AD?

I think you have to add individual users rather than being able to add a group.

is it restricted by Microsoft design or there is a way to share with group? my company requires sharing folder and files in EFS to group rather than user just like you share folder to group in non-EFS.
