Re: AESCRYPT DO NOT OPEN

If you right-click on a file and don't see the "AES Encrypt" or "AES Decrypt" menu option, then you probably installed a 32-bit version on a 64-bit machine (or vice versa). Verify the architecture type for your operating system. Since you installed AES Crypt already, first uninstall it and reboot to...

Re: AESCrypt on Ubuntu 20.04

I've seen a few GUIs where that sort of thing happened. It just reminds me that I need to find a better installer. Try this: $ ./AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install --mode console That will bypass the GUI install window and just install the software. It should still work as expected once installed.

Re: Large quantity of files to decrypt

There's no switch, but you could redirect error messages like this:

Code: Select all

aescrypt -d -p secret foo.txt.aes 2>nul
PowerShell uses $null rather than nul, I think.

Re: Large quantity of files to decrypt

Yes, there's a command-line version installed with the GUI version. See C:\Program Files\AESCrypt\aescrypt.exe.

To use it, see the examples here: https://www.aescrypt.com/windows_aes_crypt.html

Or type "aescrypt -h" for help.

Re: security for important storage

Just keep the key on the physical media encrypted, too. You could use a password that you can more easily remember, but keeping it encrypted helps to protect the important key in case somebody gets it.

Re: Portable, windows 32 bits, does not open or start.

There are two windows executables you will find after installing: 1) aescrypt.exe 2) aescrrypt32.exe The first one is what you want if you are using the command-line. The second is only used when you double-click on a file with the file extension .aes. Don't try to run that directly, since it's not ...

Re: security for important storage

Waldo, 64 random characters is probably pretty good. Let's assume those were out of a character set of 16 characters (which appears to be what the site is using) and truly random. In that case, the bit entropy of your password can be computed as log2(16)*64 or 256 bits of entropy. See: https://www.w...

Re: android version

I do not have immediate plans to create an Android version, no. Those that are on Google Play are published by third parties, as you noted. I've had a number of exchanges with the author of Crypt4All . I trust what he's done and he did leave the option on the table to create an ad-free version. Perh...

Re: Encrypt 7zip file galaxy5

That's not AES Crypt, so all I can suggest is to get a zip tool that will work. If ES File Explorer doesn't handle encryption, perhaps fine another tool that will. For example, WinZIP for Android might do it. I have not tried it. That said, if you wish to encrypt files using AES Crypt, there are at ...
