Folder ENCRYPT/DECRYPT
<dir_encryption>("Input","Output",Operation,Encryption bit strength,"Password")
Available in: Professional edition

This command encrypts/decrypts all files within an input directory (folder) including all sub-folders. Encrypted files are located in output directory. An extension ".aes" is added to the encrypted files. For example, file "Invoice_01256.doc" is encrypted to "Invoice_01256.doc.aes".

Input

(Full) path to a directory (folder) that is to be encrypted/decrypted. Example: "c:\myPrivateDocuments".

3

Operation

This parameter can be one of these:
ENCRYPT_AES - the files are encrypted using AES.
DECRYPT_AES - the files (previously encrypted using ENCRYPT_AES) are decrypted.

4

Encryption bit strength

Strength of the encryption. These values are supported: 128, 192, 256.

5

Password

User defined password that is used to encrypt/decrypt the files. A directory encrypted by a password can be successfully decrypted again only if the same password is used.
