Hi All,
I have made changes in the file record of a file in the Master File Table(MFT) of NTFS. I want a normal text file to behave as encrypted file by changing the attributes it maintains in the file record. To achieve this I have copied the $EFS attribute from an existing encrypted file to the normal file's MFT record.
This $EFS attribute written by me is identified when the file system is reloaded.
These changes are visible when I restart my computer during which it runs the CHKDSK utility.
Is there a way using which I can inform the OS that the changes written by me in the MFT should be read and not the one saved in cache.

Thanks.

What if you empty the cache, using a scheduled task, prior to the time that it's read? Would that force your changes to be read instead?
