Hi

I newbie here. I wanna encrypt multiple file by using PGP Command Line.

I tried two case below:

Case 1:

pgp --encrypt "C:\Documents and Settings\1-testing-"*.pdf --recipient 0x1112F333 --input-cleanup wipe --overwrite remove

OK, manage to encrypt.

Case 2:

pgp --encrypt "C:\Documents and Settings\\"*"-testing-"*.pdf --recipient 0x1112F333 --input-cleanup wipe --overwrite remove

Failed.

How can i implement to encrypt multiple file name as *XXX*.pdf ?

Hiu ChristineLee,

I did few tests but I don't know if this is what you expected and if I understood you correctly .

Have a look below:

Files:

1-testing-.txt
2-testing-.txt
3-testing-.txt
4-testing-.txt
5-testing-.txt
6-testing-.txt

Encrypt one file:
C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Command Line>pgp --encrypt "c:\test\1-testing-"*.txt --recipient 0x518F056B --input-cleanup wipe --overwrite remove
c:\test\1-testing-.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\1-testing-.txt.pgp)

Encrypt all files "*"
C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Command Line>pgp --encrypt "c:\test\*-testing-"*.txt --recipient 0x518F056B --input-cleanup wipe --overwrite remove
c:\test\2-testing-.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\2-testing-.txt.pgp)
c:\test\3-testing-.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\3-testing-.txt.pgp)
c:\test\4-testing-.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\4-testing-.txt.pgp)
c:\test\5-testing-.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\5-testing-.txt.pgp)
c:\test\6-testing-.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\6-testing-.txt.pgp)

Having files as follow:

1-testing-1.txt
2-testing-2.txt
3-testing-3.txt
4-testing-4.txt
5-testing-5.txt
6-testing-6.txt

Encrypt all files:

C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Command Line>pgp --encrypt "c:\test\pliki test\test\*-testing-*.txt" --recipient 0x518F056B --input-cleanup wipe --overwrite remove
c:\test\pliki test\test\1-testing-1.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\1-testing-1.txt.pgp)
c:\test\pliki test\test\2-testing-2.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\2-testing-2.txt.pgp)
c:\test\pliki test\test\3-testing-3.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\3-testing-3.txt.pgp)
c:\test\pliki test\test\4-testing-4.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\4-testing-4.txt.pgp)
c:\test\pliki test\test\5-testing-5.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\5-testing-5.txt.pgp)
c:\test\pliki test\test\6-testing-6.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\6-testing-6.txt.pgp)

or:  *XXX*

C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Command Line>pgp --encrypt "c:\test\pliki test\test\*tes*.txt" --recipient 0x518F056B --input-cleanup wipe --overwrite remove
c:\test\pliki test\test\1-testing-1.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\1-testing-1.txt.pgp)
c:\test\pliki test\test\2-testing-2.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\2-testing-2.txt.pgp)
c:\test\pliki test\test\3-testing-3.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\3-testing-3.txt.pgp)
c:\test\pliki test\test\4-testing-4.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\4-testing-4.txt.pgp)
c:\test\pliki test\test\5-testing-5.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\5-testing-5.txt.pgp)
c:\test\pliki test\test\6-testing-6.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\6-testing-6.txt.pgp)

or: *XYZ* --> I use *???*

C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Command Line>pgp --encrypt "c:\test\pliki test\test\*???*.txt" --recipient 0x518F056B --input-cleanup wipe --overwrite remove
c:\test\pliki test\test\1-testing-1.txt:encrypt (0:output file c:\test\pliki test\test\1-testing-1.txt.pgp)
