Saving an encrypted file

To copy an encrypted file or secure folder and keep the encryption, proceed as follows:

  1. In Windows Explorer, right-click on the file or folder to be archived and select Stormshield Data Security > Advanced > Save.

    Several files or folders can be selected at once.

  2. Select the destination folder.
  3. Click on OK. The selected file will be copied, with encryption, into the destination folder. The folder hierarchy is kept.

You do not need to be logged in to SDS Enterprise to save a file.

By default, SDS Enterprise is configured to allow opening encrypted files stored in a non-secure folder.

Never use the Windows save function or drag and drop files to a non-secure medium, as confidential files will be copied in plaintext.
