Trapster I think Bcrypt only works on files not directories.

I'm not sure it can be modified for 4.2, maybe jamesbond can help.

Smokey01 - It does, that's why I use tar on the directory in the script.

Thanks for your response, Trapster.
Bcrypt is not included in 4.2 by default, but I have now downloaded and installed it.
Now, I apologize for my lack of knowledge, but can you tell me what to do with that script you provided?

1. Copy and paste the script into a blank file. I called mine "encrypt-dir".
2. Save it in /usr/local/bin.
3. Use rox to navigate to /usr/local/bin and right click on encrypt-dir and click on "permissions" and choose yes.
4. Open another rox window and click on the eye in the top menu to show hidden files.
5. Navigate to /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith/.inode_directory
6. Click and drag /usr/local/bin/encrypt-dir into /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith/.inode_directory and choose "link (relative)".

You should now have the "encrypt-dir" as an option when you right click on a directory.

It will not delete the original directory. You can delete the original directory after you do a few tests to ensure it's working for you.

My apologies for hi-jacking this thread.

TwoPuppies - Please post a fresh topic if you need further assistance.
