A Windows Pro workstation user wants to encrypt a few files on an NTFS volume but he does not have administrative rights to the computer. What is TRUE about this situation?

A They can use EFS.

Most editions of Windows include the Encrypting File System (EFS), which enables encryption and decryption of files stored on NTFS volumes. EFS is available to all users, whereas BitLocker can only be enabled by administrators. In contrast to BitLocker, which benefits from having the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), it does not require any special hardware. Another difference is that BitLocker encrypts the entire volume and everything on it, whereas EFS can encrypt just one file, if requested.
