I've tried to convert my hard drive to nfts, and it says that the drive is
already in that format. When i try to encrypt a file or folder, the "encrypt
contents to secure data" box" is unclickable.... What's wrong? 0_o

Instal a third-party folder-level encryption utility such as AxCrypt beta.
You have to save the strong encryption key to a floppy disk or USB flash
