Encrypt And Email Non-text Files

Q: Encrypt And Email Non-text Files

Is there a secure and low-cost way to encrypt Quicken, Excel and PowerPoint files and email them to yourself, so you'll always have backups of your personal data?
I've seen free utilities advertised, but don't know whether it is safe to use them.
Is any of these utilities suitable for dial-up... My area does not have DSL, and won't have cable for a few months yet!

Thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I know their are web based solutions for sending encrypted emails

https://www.sendinc.com or Online Encrypt/Decrypt your text messages - infoencrypt.com ??? (never tried them do they even work? beats me)

I think it gets more confusing and difficult to setup and use if you try configuring computers and email clients to do this?

so, what is the best way to send and receive encrypted emails? is it even possible?

A:how to encrypt email? easy/best way?

Hi,

it is possible. Depends on where you would like to encrypt them: locally or on the web servers.
Have you heard about PGP/GPG before?

GPG is an open source free version of PGP.
The GNU Privacy Guard - GnuPG.org

Wikipedia info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pretty_Good_Privacy
It's available for almost all platform, if you have Windows OS worth to try is GPG4Win.

In short PGP/GPG uses symmetric key cryptography.
First you have to create your own key (public and private key).
Your public key is for people who will email with you - they have to know what your public key is, because they will use it to encrypt message for you.
If you want to send encrypted message to other person then you will need their public key and your private (secret key).

It sounds complicated but in practice it isn't.
Here are some tutorial vids you will be helpful I hope:
GnuGPTutorial - YouTube

Above example is how to encrypt your email/files locally, but there are also webmails which offers this feature - they do all this work on web servers like: Countermail or HushMail - however I don't know how much they are reliable and secure since everything is hidden for end user.

I'd recommend to use PGP/GPG encryption on your own computer if you have time to learn it. It's easy in fact but needs few minutes to understand how it works.
Setting up GPG, and learning it, would be next...but you will never get all your contacts to use it. Unfortunately.

Hello,
I'm looking, perhaps in vain, for security software with a special feature.

I want to send an email in encrypted form. The recipient sometime before received an email with a decoding key. They don't own this special software, I just gave them a decoding key which only works on email and attachments from me.

As I understand it PGP requires they have PGP so they can give me their public key. I would then encrypt using their key.

Passwords would be a backup but I think I prefer the encryption method.

As you can probably tell I don't know much about the topic so ALL replies will be appreciated.

Thanks
 

A:Encrypt Outlook email software

Would this work .....

1) Create a text file with your private message.

2) Combine the text file and any attachments into a single ZIP compressed file with password protection. If I recall correctly, the password is used to encrypt the compressed data. Windows XP knows how to create and open zip files and many users of older operating systems probably have software for working with zip files installed.

3) Send the password protected zip file as an attachment to a plaintext e-mail. The text in the message could simply say "Protected file attached."

4) The recipient saves the attachment and then opens it using their zip software and the previously arranged password. If you are sure the recipient is using a Windows based PC and does not have any zip software installed, you could make your attachment a self extracting zip file. This may still cause a problem if the user has limited privileges on the computer and can not run a downloaded executable file.

I have been trying to encrypt a folder using PGP 9.0.6 and Cryptainer Secure It 3.1.7.

What's weird is that the folder and the files within it will not encrypt and I don't know why? Further more the folder will actually be missing files. Can anybody explain to me? No, I am not setting the applications to erase files after completion.

PGP Conventional Encryption has worked finally. I tried all the obvious stuff first like closing all non-essential volumes (virtual disk that are created and encrypted by PGP), transferring the files to another drive, etc.

On a slightly separate issue. I did have some data corruption involving an older and separate group of files. However I deemed that to a hardware failure or a OS/Software failure. Figured it might provide valid insight.

Update: Now my PGP conventional encryption, non .exe file generation worked. I don't understand why it wouldn't work? Going to rename the source folder and try again. MY encrypted .exe file generation with PGP should work.

I tried again. PGP conventional encryption and PGP Zip both encrypted fine. I tried creating a PGP .exe file and again it failed and files are missing; why?

A few days ago, I noticed a popup saying computer wanted to reboot and would if I didn't postpone it. I wasn't doing anything, so I went ahead and did it. The windows updates (running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit) applied and I got back to the desktop. Adobe put up a box saying there was an update for it too, so I clicked on it. Before I could start it though, I got a windows box that said "Encrypting File System" and told me to backup my file encryption certificate and key. After some searching on google with a different computer, I found that this sometimes come up even if you have never encrypted anything as I have not. So I went ahead and let it save the key to a flash drive. I did the cipher /u command to find if any files were encrypted. It found thousands of files in 7 directories. Mostly pictures (.jpg) on the second hard drive and they weren't viewable.

Error: "Windows Photo Viewer can't open this picture because you don't have the correct permissions to access the file location."

Filenames were green in explorer. So I tried using the backup of the encryption certificate and key. It seemed to restore just fine, but all the files were still encrypted. I tried the decript command "cipher /d" but that wanted to either be in the directory or specify the directory/filename and the list from the /u just flew by and would only scroll back so far.

After some more searching, found a .vbs script to find all the encrypted files... Read more

I believe it is becasue when you originally encrypted the file, it used the original user account information to create the hash, etc for the encryption. When yoou reinstalled, did you recreate the user accounts with the same names as originally created?

If your computer ever becomes permanently unbootable and if you didn't back up your key with those files then Windows encrypted files will be lost. Beware of that. Accordingly people recommend True Crypt instead.

A:Don't want others see your files. Encrypt them with XP

Blade Jones makes a good point regarding NTFS encryption. It is a very valuable feature but you must understand the implications of using it. On this forum and others I have seen many cases where a user has reinstalled the OS or upgraded to a later version, only to find that important encrypted files are no longer accessible. This is a serious matter. NTFS encryption scrambles the contents of a file using a key that is a part of the user account. If that key is lost, and it will be when the OS is reinstalled., it is almost impossible to decrypt such files. Creating a new account with the same name and password will not create the same key.

It is possible to backup the encryption key before an OS reinstall but few people do so, or are even aware of the need.

With any encryption method involving a password be very sure you do not forget it! Forum rules do not permit help with lost passwords.

I looked up how to encrypt files and it said windows 7 had a encryption software built in. I went to properties and went to the advance options and there was encrypt file for secure data or something like that. But it was unselectable.

A:How do encrypt files on my windows 7?

Whether you need to protect internal or removable drives, BitLocker in Windows 7 makes that protection easy because it works with almost any drive. Windows 7 simplifies the encryption of internal drives by automatically creating the hidden boot partition
necessary to use BitLocker to protect the OS volume, eliminating the need to manually select that option during installation or to repartition the drive afterward. Best of all, BitLocker can be enabled on drives running Windows 7 with a simple right-click...STEP
BY STEP GUIDE FOR SIMPLE ENCRYPTION IS:-
1.To enable encryption you would right click a folder or file and then choose Properties from the displaying menu.
2.Once the Properties page appears you would click the Advanced button on the General Tab and choose the Select the Encrypt contents to secure data check box, and then click OK.
3.Another dialog box will come up to give you the option of applying the changes to the folder only or to the folder, any subfolders found and the files within.
[NOTES FROM THE FIELD] – It is important to note that once you start encrypting information that you should back up your encryption certificate which is the “key” to lock and unlock the data. If your certificate and
key are lost or damaged and you do not have a backup, in most cases where a local system is involved, that encrypted information is lost as it remains forever locked.

I am attempting to encrypt files on a Windows 7 OS using EFS.
Receiving an error that states "The File Recovery certificate being outdated or expired is the most frequent cause of this invalid recovery certificate message".

I have located this to an expired certificate under RSoP, belonging to an account called sysadmin. The problem is that this laptop was a computer that I was given when I left my previous job. I'm presuming that account belong to the tech support team. It no longer exists under user accounts.
I've logged on with the Administrator account and recreated a certificate and generated the DRA, but still receive the same error. The certificate for sysadmin under RSoP still remains.
 

A:Unable to encrypt files using EFS

You're up a creek without a paddle man. EFS is non-trivial and you need the original Recovery Agent to access it.

Consider this scenario:

disk is EFS
user X has a password
user X account is deleted, but the data is kept
we discover, oops, we need something
recreate user X and even reuse the same original password
ACCESS DENIED results.
The encryption key is created such that it is unique to

the HD
the partition
the user
his/her password
time of day the password is created
The ONLY choice is to have created the Recovery Agent while the account was still active.

An encrypted file or folder is a file or folder that only someone with the appropriate permissions can view.

If you are the administrator of a computer with folders or files on it that you have created then you can encrypt them and only someone with the appropriate permissions i.e you and anyone else you give permission to can see and view the contents of that folder or file.

You can only do things with the file if you created it or are the administrator or have the appropriate permissions.

As a rule, I don't run NTFS on any of my systems and I advise against it in most situations. The reason is that I consider the additional stability and security that NTFS offers to be outweighed by the disadvantage of making it impossible, if not near impossible, to clean adware/spyware/viruses from an infected machine. But now I am presented with a new dilemma:

I have a laptop that I am using more as time progresses. It has a lot of information stored on it about my clients' user names, passwords, e-mail configurations, product keys (which they do lose, occasionally). Losing the laptop to a thief and the potential that the thief would discover the valuable and sensitive information stored on it . . . Well, I think you get the idea.

I am thinking of converting the laptop to NTFS and encrypting the many folders that contain sensitive information, thus protecting my clients from any potential damage due to loss of the laptop.

Here's the proposed scenario and conditions:
The laptop's hard disk is converted to NTFS.
Folders containing sensitive information are encrypted.
The OS on the laptop crashes and is unrecoverable.
I am forced to trash the existing OS and set up Windows 2000 or XP fresh and clean and start over again.
What must I do now to prepare for this day so that after the OS is loaded again, I can access those encrypted folders?

- Append a “.F53FLIN” to the end of the second line in the INFO.TXT so it looks like “XXXX_XXXX_XXXX_XXXX_XXXX.F53FLIN”
- Add 4 lines in the HISTORY.TXT file, a timestamp (when the script is run, now()), and a copy of INFO.TXT with an empty/blank line following it
So, in essence I am trying to write a script that adds the .F53FLIN to the INFO.TXT (second line) and a TimeStamp+INFO.TXT+BLANK LINE in the HISTORY.TXT (append to the end).

I have tried a few attempts but nothing is coming out even close to right, was hoping someone could help solve the problem.
Any hints, ideas, or help would be greatly appreciated,

Which language are you trying to develop this script in?

I have a project where I need to search a large amount of text files on my home PC. I recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. My research indicated this feature was available in Windows 7.

If you do a search in Windows XP, you get a bunch of fields. You can pick to search for text INSIDE the particular sub folder structure.

I have found this feature in Windows 7, but it is different. I have tried using wild cards but it does not seem to work properly.

Thanks for any advice, if you need further assistance, I could make a video to show the issue.

A:Searching a bunch of text files for a particular text string

I don't have Windows 7. So I can't comment on how effective the search feature is. But I know I would not be able to function without the tool Agent Ransack.

It's a free utility, see if it will work for your needs: http://www.softpedia.com/reviews/windows/Agent-Ransack-Review-60432.shtml

Hi,

First, I apologize for this post being so long.

I'm running windows XP w/Service Pack 3 and all critical updates.
I'm having a strange problem with text files.
The text I enter into the file gets mysteriously rearranged.

I was making a numbered list in notepad.

Like this (just as an example):
1. Text on the first line.

2. Text on the second line.

3. Text on the third line.

4. Text on the fourth line.

5. Text on the fifth line.
Nothing fancy just entering the info manually.
the list was numbered up to line 190.
I went back to look over the list and I noticed that
it was numbered wrong. Some numbers were skipped.
I just figured I misnumbered it but after I fixed the
numbering it kept happening.

I copied and pasted the list from notepad into another text editing
program and it kept happening in the other program too.
So to test it I wrote a few more lines to see if it would mess it
up again.

I wrote 5 more lines in the new program
(numbering here is just an example):
10. Text on the tenth line.

11. Text on the eleventh line.

12. Text on the twelfth line.

13. Text on the thirteenth line.

14. Text on the fourteenth line.
I left notepad open while I looked over to watch something on tv for
a few minutes and when I looked back at the computer the thing had
renumbered itself again. The last two lines had switched places and
were now both numbered the same number.
It looked like this:

10. Text on the tenth line.

11. Text on the Eleventh line.

A:Problem with text files rearranging the text I enter.

Hi Phil -The one thing missing is either a Screen shot or a Copy / Paste of how the text actually looks -Has the above been done on the same computer, or another computer ???It looked like this: << Is a bit hard to diagnose at times without seeing the problem that you mention -Do a document and take a screen shot as soon as you finish ~ Let it sit for 5 minutes ~ Take another screen shot You only need to enter silly text but it is a recorded text -Thank You -

I've done a bit of research and noticed that in MS Word is has a feature built in to bring back text that was deleted. However in Notepad I was looking through some basic text files and noticed I delete one of my account details. I believe this was done two months or a month ago. I didn't post this under MS Office because it's not the same application. Is it possible to recover lost text in .txt files if I have the original one where it was deleted? I also don't have the option of a system recovery that far back.

A:Text recovery from Text files.

Hi ComputerGeek !

Unfortunately there's no backup feature at all in notepad : the text you delete is lost as soon as you close the file. A system recovery won't help you since it only restores some given system files and settings, not personal files.

If you had immediately stopped using the computer then maybe some recovery program could have found the missing bits. But since you used it for more than a month since then the cluster that data was written on has already been filled by new data

How can one enlarge a received email message that is so small you can't read it?
 

A:email text

If none of the in-program veiw text size adjustments is not adequate or you cannon or don't want to click on forward and then highlight the text and change font size to something readable then you might have to copy the text over to a word processing program and enlarge it there.

My browser is firefox and XP is my OS. Friends tell me that the text does not go completely across the page when I send them an email. It stays on the first one third to one half of the page. I know there is a site to correct this but I cannot remember just where it is.
Please, someone, give me the location of this elusive helpful hint. Thanks as always.

Well, I was just trying to move the "myfiles" icon (I have been keeping my text files there) on the My Computer screen to the top of the screen, so I clicked and drug to the top, accidentally releasing and copying it to the Windows XP file at the top named 880c6a5879f57165f5. I was able to remove the myfiles directory and can list the files, but when I attempt to open I get a message that the file is "in use or read only" and i must rename it to open. I click on the dialogue box yes and get the same box, then the third time it goes away. How can view and copy these files or remove the protected status?? Thanks!

Hello friends,

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit. The icons for firefox HTM/HTML files are
not displayed properly. They are displayed like Text files. I even configured the default icon
for .htm/.html files in FileTypesMan utility. Still in the windows explorer, the files are shown as Text
document. Has the "Perceived file types" has anything to do ? I don't find HTML file in the list of Perceived file types.
Please help.

When I compose an email in Hotmail, and send a copy to the Sent folder, the message displayed in the Sent Folder includes all the HTML format codes. This makes it hard to read. How do I set up HOtmail so that it shows the text without all the codes? The recipient's message is OK.

A:Email Text Format

I think you need to go to the "options" link in your hotmail inbox. Then under the "additional options" section select "mail display settings". Once there, under "message headers" select none. Please let me know if it works!!!

Okay so first, thanks for existing and all, as I can imagine you've all helped a lot of users \ people out! Second, this should be an interesting one, or not, but you tell me...

A friend has a problem that as techy as I say to everyone that I am, I find myself at a loss. She had an email exchange that went back and fourth for a few months, lots of text, and she wants to copy and paste it to a word \ .doc file. The problem is, either from her end or her friend's, the text got messed up... This is how it looks as I went lower and lower in the email thread:
xxxxxx xx xxx xxxxxxx

aaaaaaa aaa, aaaaaa aaaa aa aa
TTT
lmnop qr st

uvwxyz.
It started off normal enough, but like I said, as I went down it looked like that, (sans the random letters I used.) The spacing was way off as well. So I copied and pasted it in word and tried to realign the body, nothing. Same with other basic office programs, still no luck. I even tried to fudge around in the browser through the email body and again, nothing. So I'm curious if there's any advice \ options here to get this text back to normal? Thanks in advance!

I'm work remotely and retrieve emails from a either a company web portal (on work pc w/Windows XP) and emails from Cisco vpn through Groupwise ( on very old Win 98 laptop). I recently began receiving emails from Analysts who also work remotely for a client and have been getting squares instead of text in the body of the email. Here's the grid of what I can and can't read:

Emails from their personal address (hotmail, gmail ,etc) through Cisco= textual and reads fine on

Emails from their personal address through portal = textual and reads fine

Emails from their company address through Cisco = textual and reads fine

Emails from their company address through my company portal - Squares for text in body of the email.

I am getting no help from my company IT Support to date so am tapping into the brain trust here in hopes I get a resolution sooner.
