encrypting /locking floppy disk

By dad269 ·
Would anyone know whre I could download a program that would encrypt or lock a floppy disk? I have one for files, but have to unlock each file individualy and would like to be able to just lock or encrypt the whole disk at once.

Thanks in advance.

Take a look at WinZip
http://www.winzip.com
You can, not only compress the files, but, password protect the whole thing and extract files on at a time.
There is also a shareware program called DiskLock. It will allow you to look at the file list, but no operations such as copy - execute - or open can be performed.

Hi

There are two possible solutions.
PGP Freeware available at www.pgpi.org.
This will enable you to encrypt at the directory level. As it uses public/private key encryption you will need to have the appropriate private key at the location where you intend to decrypt the disk.

The other option is a program called bcrypt. This works on a passphrase only, but still provides 128 bit encryption. It will not do the directory level encryption but you can drag files onto it in windows explorer

I would recommend PGP


Cheers
Peter
