What file extension will the encrypted file have when it is saved on the hard disk?
|The file extension that this the encrypted file will have is the filename
along with its extension and ".epf" is included as a postfix to the complete file name. For Example, if you are encoding a file named "Test.txt" and saving it on your Hard Disk, the encoded file name would be
"Text.txt.epf". On the other, if you
are making a self-decrypting file, the file extension
saved on the hard disk will have
"Test.txt.exe". which on clicking will ask for
the key and then will decode it.

Key' using the same key I have encoded it with.
|Have you made sure
that the key phrase you have used to encode the file
is ABSOLUTELY equal to the key phrase you are trying
to decode it with? Remember, every character is case
sensitive, and the amount of spaces between characters
counts just as well. Moreover the size of the key
should always be of exactly 32 digits.

installed on my system, how do I open the file?
|Even if you do not
have an Encryption Protection Application installed
in your system and you want to decode an encoded file,
don't panic. You can do the decoding in two ways.
|If the target file
is an encrypted .epf file then open the link http://encryptionprotection.com/online.htm.
Download the FREE decoder program and
then install it on your computer. Follow the
instructions and It will allow you to decode any .epf
file you have or may receive in the future.
| If the target file
is an encrypted .exe file then simply click on the

button. The file is automatically decrypted.

up to 448 bits means that we are using the bit stuffing
of up to 448 bits in the process of encryption. Moreover
it allows the optimal encryption speed. This
application uses all the symbols whose ASCII value
lies between 1- 448 and encrypts your file so
thoroughly that no one could decipher it.
am a Graphic Designer and I would like to know if my Flash file
can be encrypted?
|Yes, the Encryption
Protection Application allows you to encrypt any type
of file(s). It is accurate enough to encrypt an .exe
file. It not only encrypts a file but also retains
their format and on decryption you’ll get the
exactly the same format that you had encrypted.
Encryption Protection encrypt folders?
|The Encryption Protection
Application is capable of encrypting a batch of files
within a folder in a single run and packs them into
a single secured file. Go to the tab “File Encoder”
add a list of files that you want to encode. Provide
a destination location to store the encrypted file(s)
and click the button “ENCODE”. The file(s)
will be encoded with a single key value. In the same
way you can decode a batch of files (provided they
have the same key value) from the tab “FILE

EP able to encrypt images or objects contained in
a .doc file?
|If an object, picture or
an image is depicted within a MS Word document, or in
any other file of a word processing application, it gets
encoded automatically once the document is secured by
EP. When an HTML-file is secured by EP and the actual
picture is located somewhere else, the application will
encrypt its link only and not the picture. For
encrypting the pictures, you need
to encrypt the pictures separately.

|What is the maximum
limit of files/folders I can shred in a single go?
You cannot shred more than one file at
a single go. Folder shredding is not permissible. Although
you can select each file from the folder and shred them
|Can I email the self
decrypting .exe file as an attachment?
|Yes, you can, but we
recommend that you zip the self decrypting .exe file(s) before sending
them via email as many email services do not allow sending
plain .exe files. Also save the key as a file and include
it in the attachment. The self decrypting .exe file will allow you to browse for the key file
so you will not have to send the key as a regular text
How much time does
encoding a file take?
|It is really difficult
to predict the amount of time it will take for encrypting
a file. Time taken for the process of encryption is
totally dependent on the size of file to be encrypted.
