Enable NTFS pagefile encryption

Encrypting the page file prevents malicious users from reading data that has been paged to disk but also adds processing overhead for filesystem operations. Enabling this setting will cause the page files to be encrypted.


Additional Information

  1. Registry path is:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> System -> CurrentControlSet -> Policies # NtfsEncryptPagingFile

  2. The Administrative Template path is:

    System -> Filesystem -> NTFS
