How To Encrypt And Protect Your Files Or Folders In Windows

How to hide or lock your secret folder and files from others? Do you know that Windows has a build in encrypt feature? Have you ever wonder how can you able to simplify the encrypt or decrypt process in right click context menu instead of going through these hassle steps? Try the following step by step tutorial:

Open notepad
Copy the following string and paste it into notepad
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


Save the notepad as “Encrypt.reg” with Save as type is “All Files”
Double click the registry file, continue with UAC prompt and click OK to confirm you wish to perform the action
The only trouble is, this encrypt works without a password, meaning to say someone else who has access to your computer could easily decrypt your files and folder. It only works to prevent unauthorized access if there is a hard disk swap or a transfer of file to another computer.
