To open this feature, select the "Quick-Find, Encrypt" menu item from the main window.|
Encrypting your files will make them unreadable until they are decrypted. This is useful if you don't want anyone else to view data on your computer. Only those who know the encryption password that you use will be able to decrypt the files.
Note that the encryption feature is NOT protected by JPEG Japery's recycle bin protection so it is important that you do not forget the password that you use.
To encrypt all target files, enter a password (key) and click the start button. To decrypt these files, target them if they are not targeted (in the main window), enter the key you used to encrypt them and then click the start button again to decrypt them.
The JPEG Japery Encryptor meets the 128 bit standard.
Key Text Box:
|Use this box to enter a memorable key to encrypt or decrypt your files with. You must remember this key as you will need it to decrypt your encrypted files. (Note that this field is not saved on exit for security purposes). The key can be up to 255 characters long.|
|Click this button to encrypt or decrypt files.|
|Click this button to close the encrypt window and return to the main window.|

Select "Full Path" to list all jpg files and folders with their full path (for example: instead of listing "myfile.txt", select this option to list "c:\myfile.txt").
You can choose to list all targets, read-only targets or targets with a positive archive flag. For example, when working on files, select the "Read Only Targets" option to list read-only files and ignore all others.
