Archive and encrypt
ZipKrypt allows you to protect private files from unauthorised access, by adding them to an encrypted ZIP archive. Each ZIP file can be password protected, with a phrase of your choice, that includes letters, digits and other symbols. The longer and the more types of characters the password contains, the stronger it is.
You can easily add a certain file to an encrypted archive, but you may also create a task, that involves specifying a password, a source directory and an output path. Once started, the task can encrypt all the items located in the input folder. You need to specify if you wish to generate an independent archive for each file, or include them all in one ZIP.
Easily decrypt files
ZipKrypt can easily perform the decryption process, on files it previously encoded. Simply select the dedicated option or create a decryption task. The software can display all the active tasks in a separate tab, where you may view and edit them. Each task can be performed once, punctually or in a recurring manner, according to a schedule.
You may set the task to automatically run every few days or on selected days of the week. Each task can also be modified, to include the desired files or folders. Certain variable values, such as the source directory, the source file name or the output path can be viewed in special dialog boxes. Moreover, the software can generate activity logs, in which to portray the encryption tasks, the decoding activities or errors.
Reliable backup creator
ZipKrypt can easily be used as a backup creator, since it can generate encrypted copies of the selected files. Moreover, when the scheduler is enabled, it can create recurring copies of the source folder, including the most recent modifications, new files or deleted items. The software can apply strong AES 256 password encryption to each ZIP file, in order to protect it from unauthorised users.
ZipKrypt can automatically encrypt and decrypt files and folders. Common tasks include encrypt, decrypt, copy, zip, unzip, synchronize and file monitors.
Includes scheduler to run tasks. A chaining feature can run tasks in sequence or conditionally depending on exit codes. Additional features include email notifications on task failure, zip file viewer, extensive logging, remote task control and more.
It supports dynamic variables to achieve advanced automation tasks. Email notification profiles based on exit code can be set for tasks. Schedules can be synchronized to allow or prevent overlapping schedules.
Dynamic variables allow for advanced automation solutions. Number of command-line utilities are available to remotely and programmatically control tasks and the scheduler.
