What is the difference between "Protected" storage and "Folder" storage?



"Protected" storage is where temporary files are created as encrypted.

"Folder" storage is where temporary files are created as un-encrypted.


Please see this MSDN article as a reference.



If whole disk encryption is already in use, then additional encryption may be disallowed by the encryption technology that is in use at the disk-level. In that situation, use "Folder" storage.
