encore ou toujours?

I've got a question about French that hopefully someone knows the answer to.

I know that both "encore" and "toujours" can be used to mean "still." Is there any difference as to when they are used though?

And if I wanted to say, "She is still here," would I say "Elle est encore ici" or "Elle est toujours ici?"


EDIT: Found answers here and here.
