Re: Encrypt files in folder

AES Crypt is intended to encrypt files and will not traverse directories. However, you can select all files in a folder, right-click, and select AES Encrypt to encrypt all of them using the same password. You can also search a folder for files and encrypt all of them you select. There is a command-l...

Re: why not delete unrestorable the original file

I didn't write the software to delete the original file automatically since people usually encrypt to put the encrypted file elsewhere (flash drive, cloud, email, etc.). The other problem with deleting a file is that it can only be guaranteed to delete in traditional magnetic drives. Newer solid sta...

Re: Windows AES syntax different path

The Linux version can do that, but I've not ported it over to the Windows version. I intend to, but I've intended to for a year or more. So, don't expect it. :) Seriously, I want to do that, but at the same time merge some of the code and clean things up in the process. And it's the latter that will...

Re: Windows AES syntax different path

This is an example I threw together quickly. There might be a better way to do it, but I'm not a batch file guru. @echo off rem rem batchcrypt <password> <outputdir> <filenames> rem for %%F in (%3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9) do c:\"Program Files"\AESCrypt\aescrypt -e -p %1 -o %2\%%F.aes %%F You would call th...

Re: Windows AES syntax different path

You can't specify an output file using a wildcard. It needs to be a specific file name. For example, you can do this: aescrypt -d -o e:\foo.txt c:\foo.txt.aes But the wildcard character "**" is not a valid output file name. Easiest way to do a bunch of files in a batch is to write a batch file to do...

Re: Windows AES syntax different path

If using the command-line version, you can specify the output file name using the -o option. The GUI version will only output in the same directory. That's purposefully done to make the program as easy to use as possible.

Re: Message length Invalid

This error is returned when AES Crypt attempts to read a 16 octet cipher block, but the operating system returns only a partial block. In other words, the file has been truncated somehow. If you were to compare these two files, you'd discover they're not exactly the same length. Try to get the file ...

New Firefox version of Single Pass

Mozilla just created a new version of Firefox that supports WebExtensions. That means that SinglePass can now work in Firefox!

Re: Flash Drive Console Issues

The console version is supposed to be run from the command line. Either open a "cmd" window or "power shell" window to run it.

Re: Does an encrypted file show the same number of bytes?

Yeah, that would prevent anyone who has the plaintext file from matching it with the length of the encrypted file. Just make sure those other files are truly random in size. If you used the same additional file in every instance and there were many files to inspect, a person with all this data might...
