Add/Modify Entry - Encrypted File

Password Depot offers the possibility to encrypt external files with the secure algorithm AES 256 Bit. The password which you need to decrypt the file afterwards can be stored within your database.  

There are four ways how you can create an entry for an encrypted file:

In the dialog window General (shown after the first and third options), the following functions are available:

On the second tab Files, you have the following options:

Click on OK to save changes, or on Cancel to close the window without saving changes.

NOTE: Encrypted files are always saved and deposited on your own data storage medium, whereas Password Depot´s database only contains the password and link to the encrypted file. If you delete the file from your computer, e.g. via Windows Explorer, you will no longer be able to access it. In contrast to this, the entry type Document saves your file directly within Password Depot´s database, i.e. documents are part of your Password Depot database.

NOTE: In this dialog box, you may use the virtual keyboard. This function is situated in the lower left-hand corner of the dialog box.
