Creating encrypted packages

Kaspersky Endpoint Security does not perform file compression when it creates an encrypted package.

To create an encrypted package:

  1. On a computer with Kaspersky Endpoint Security installed and encryption functionality enabled, use any file manager to select files and/or folders that you want to add to an encrypted package. Right-click to open their context menu.
  2. In the context menu, select Add to encrypted package.

    The standard Microsoft Windows dialog box Choose path to save the encrypted package opens.

  3. In the standard Microsoft Windows dialog box Choose path to save the encrypted package, select a destination for saving the encrypted package on the removable drive. Click the Save button.

    The Add to encrypted package window opens.

  4. In the Add to encrypted package window, type and confirm a password.
  5. Click the Create button.

    The encrypted package creation process starts. When the process finishes, a self-extracting password-protected encrypted package is created in the selected destination folder on the removable drive.

If you cancel the creation of an encrypted package, Kaspersky Endpoint Security performs the following operations:

  1. Terminates the processes of copying files to the package and ends all ongoing package encryption operations, if any.
  2. Removes all temporary files that have been created in the process of creating and encrypting a package and the file of the encrypted package itself.
  3. Notifies the user that the encrypted package creation process has been forcefully terminated.
