I am looking for a file-level encryption program that ideally runs in the right-click context. Previously I utilized AxCrypt, however this has gone to a premium subscription-model, requiring a $30.00 per year license to use AES-256!
Essentially I want file-level encryption (AES-256 as the preferred), that allows me to decrypt the file when used, and then encrypt when done. The reason I want this is the data will be encapsulated in a PGP disk with encryption, thus adding another layer of support. Therefore, tools like EncFS and Veracrypt (to my knowledge) fail - they are encryption disks/partitions that store non-file level encrypted files within them.
Presently, I am trialing AES Crypt, however already have the following issues:
- It makes a duplicate encrypted file, meaning I must delete the old file once performed.
- When decrypting the file, if the name exists (as in
notes.txt) it will not replace that file.
- Concerns with automation of the process as listed here.
I have also trialed crococryptFile and have noted the following issues:
- Each time a file is decrypted it is placed inside a
- Multiple files/folders are not supported to be encrypted at any one time and;
- The GUI feels bloaty/slow, and is not a "fast" process to perform actions.
- Support AES-256
- Be less than $30.00(Australian Dollar) for single purchase
- Run on Windows 10 natively
- Have the capability to encrypted multiple files at once
Nice to have:
- Right click context menu
- Command line options (for batch processing)
- Replace files when encrypted (
