Set-up configuration

TrustPort Archive Encryption 2.5 allows the user to set/up some properties that were not allowed to be modified on previous versions.

You can find the Set-up configuration window in "Configuration" on the "Options" menu on CAR Manager toolbar and also on the right upper side of the Encrypt Archive window. Here you can set-up Drag and Drop Properties and choose between different compresion levels. Drag and Drop properties allows you to move files or folders automatically encrypting or decrypting them when you move them from and to encrypted archives.

You can also set the default viewer for encrypted files.

Configuring and using the viewer


You can select a file and click on the View file toolbar button or press F3 and CAR Manager will allow you to view the file using the selected viewer indicated in the Set-up configuration box

When you open a file this way it will be extracted to a temporary folder and after closing it, the temporary file will be securely deleted from there, so no traces of the extracted file will remain in the computer.

The user can choose any viewer but TrustPort recomends the use of "Lister" viewer. (free download at http://www.ghisler.com/lister/ ). If you want to set or change the viewer, click on the External viewer path in the Set-up configuration box and a new window will pop-up where you can browse for and select the desired viewer. Click OK and the chosen viewer will be used.
