FileImportEncryptedFileRaw Method (Stream, String, PathFormat)

[AlphaFS] Restores (import) encrypted files. This is one of a group of Encrypted File System (EFS) functions that is intended to implement backup and restore functionality, while maintaining files in their encrypted state.

Namespace:  Alphaleonis.Win32.Filesystem
Assembly:  AlphaFS (in AlphaFS.dll) Version: 2.0
public static void ImportEncryptedFileRaw(
	Stream inputStream,
	string destinationFilePath,
	PathFormat pathFormat


Type: System.IOStream
The stream to read previously backed up data from.
Type: SystemString
The path of the destination file to restore to.
Type: Alphaleonis.Win32.FilesystemPathFormat
The path format of the destinationFilePath parameter.

If the caller does not have access to the key for the file, the caller needs Backup to restore encrypted files. See PrivilegeEnabler.

To restore an encrypted file call one of the ImportEncryptedFileRaw Overload overloads and specify the file to restore along with the destination stream of the restored data.

This function is intended for the restoration of only encrypted files; see BackupFileStream for backup of unencrypted files.
