There are 3 types to encrypt a folder in Best Encryption Expert: full encryption, diamond encryption and portable encryption.
Full encryption encrypts all files in a folder into encrypted files at one time. You can open a Full-encrypted folder normally without entering password, but each file inside needs the correct password to access.
Using the diamond encryption if you want to open a folder with a password and the highest security. The diamond-encrypted folder looks like the Figure 6.
Using the portable encryption if you want to decrypt an encrypted folder on another computer. Portable Encryption packs and encrypts a folder into an executable (.exe) file with internationally mature encryption algorithm. You can encrypt important data with this method, and it can be used on a computer where Best Encryption Expert is not installed.
Note: Full Encryption, Diamond Encryption and Portable Encryption feature strong encryption intensity and the encrypted folder can only be decrypted with the correct password, so please keep the password firmly in your mind if you use one of the three encryption types. Yet these three encryption methods are a little slower, therefore they are perfect for important folders within 990M.
If you want to open an encrypted file or folder, just double click it and enter your password. The file and folder will be re-encryped automatically after you close it.
If you want to decrypt, please first start Best Encryption Expert, select the file or folder you want to decrypt, and click the Decrypt Data button. Enter your password and click OK.
For full-encrypted folders, you can also decrypt it by right-clicking on the folder, selecting "Decrypt Full-Encrypted Folder" and then entering your password. (see the Figure 10)

The password-protected folder looks like the Figure 15.
As you can see from the picture above, a password-protected folder becomes a shortcut and is 1 KB in size. It is not the real folder but you can reach the initial folder through this shortcut. Besides, please first unprotect the folder if you want to backup or move it, otherwise you just backup/move a shortcut of the folder.

Double click the password-protected folder, enter your password, and the folder is opened (The hiding-protected and disguised folder can only be opened with the protection record in software). Then you can view and edit the folder in three modes: Folder Browser, Image Browse and Temporary Unprotect.
The default mode is Folder Browse. You can copy, move, delete, rename the files and folders inside Folder Browser just like you do in windows explorer. You can also copy/move the data in Folder Browser to windows explorer, and vice versa.
After using files/folders in the protected folder, just close Folder Browser and the folder will be re-protected automatically.
