    CMD cipher /e on a folder output "Request not supported"

    I've recently discovered cipher command on windows-10 command-line.

    Now, the problem is when I'm try to execute cipher /e [directory name] or cipher /e [absolute path], because I'm always receiving the error [directory name]: Request not supported..

    Some useful info:

    • I'm running Microsoft Windows 10 Home
    • I've executed the command as administrator either on 'cmd' and 'powershell'
    • The disk's file system is in 'NTFS'.
    • I've gave all the access to all the users in the 'Security' attribute on the interested folder(An empty folder for test purposes).

    Could someone give me a hint/suggestion/solution about where the problem could be? Am I missing something important?

    "The request is not supported" error on cipher command

    Hi, i just want to secure my personal file on my PC using cipher command on cmd. Here i input the command:

    C:\Windows\system32>cd C:\Users\User\Desktop\Yada

    C:\Users\User\Desktop\Yada>cipher /e

    What i expect:

    Encrypting files in C:\Users\User\Desktop\Yada\

    Stuff.txt [OK]

    1 file(s) [or directorie(s)] within 1 directorie(s) were encrypted

    Reality:

    Encrypting files in C:\Users\User\Desktop\Yada\

    Stuff.txt [ERR]

    Stuff.txt: The request is not supported.

    0 file(s) [or directorie(s)] within 1 directorie(s) were encrypted

    Here's my PC's spesification:

    Windows edition:

    Windows 10 Home

    Processor:

    AMD A4-9125 RADEON R3, 4 COMPUTE CORES 2C+2G 2,30 GHz

    Installed memory (RAM): 4,00 GB
