Password Protect Files?

  • Hi,

    How do I password protect a file when I compress it using .ZIP?

    I am using PowerArchiver 2009 v11.01.03 (licensed)

    Thankyou for any help!

  • You select Encryption (password) in the options tab of the new archive (ZIP) dialogue.

    Or if using shell (explorer) then select Zip with options …

    Or if you want to protect the whole archive, then select Tools/Encrypt File (or Encrypt from the shell menu) to create a “PAE” file (PowerArchiver Encrypted).

  • If I select all the files I want to compress then right click then select “Compress with Options” it does not show any password options on the “Add” screen.

    UPDATE - Its fine now I worked it out, thansk for your help.
