- Verify the name of the selected folder in the Encrypt Files From This Folder edit box. To change the selected folder click Select and select a new folder. You can also click Close and select a new folder in the main window.
- Decrypt Files Into This Folder displays a destination folder. Encrypted files will be saved into this folder. To select or create a destination folder click Select. Select or make a new folder in the Browse For Folder window.
- Encrypt Files With This Name edit box displays the name of the selected file if the file was selected for encryption, or displays a wildcard (*.*) if a folder was selected for encryption. The wildcard *.* means all files from the selected folder will be encrypted. You can define your wildcard here. For example if you enter *.txt only text files will be encrypted.
- Enter a new extension in the Change File Extension To edit box. Empty box means that all encrypted files will be created with the same name and extension as your original files. If you enter new value then encrypted files will have file extension changed. For example you can enter ENC as a new extension. If a file selected for encryption has BACKUP.DAT name, then this file will be encrypted and saved as BACKUP.ENC. Use this option with caution. For example if you have two files backup.dat, backup.zip, and you defined ENC as new extension then after encryption you will have only one file backup.enc. For Encryption you can use a '+' in Change File Extension To edit box, for example "+.enc". This means that the encrypted files will have ".enc" added to the names, for example "data.dbf" will be encrypted as "data.dbf.enc", "data.mdx" will become "data.mdx.enc". For Decryption you will have to enter "-.enc". This means that the decrypted files will have ".enc"
removed from the end of the names, so "data.dbf.enc" will become "data.dbf".
