Okoker Encrypt Folder allows you to protect and prevent access of your important folders from others. It will automatically encrypt the folders when added. A protected folder and its contents will be prevented from being renamed, modified, deleted, copied, moved, accessed .

The key pair is automatically generated when you encrypt any folder. If the key pair is lost or damaged, you cannot access your encrypted data. Check out this nice tip on Add Encrypt / Decrypt Options to Windows Vista Right-Click Menu
