Identifying unencrypted files

Created: 03 Jul 2012 • Updated: 04 Jul 2012 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

A check of a folder status shows that there are 27 unencrypted files in the folder. Is there any way of identifying what those files are as the encrypted folder contains about 1500 files and I would prefer not to have to look through each one.

I'm using PGP 10.2.1 and the encrypted folder is on a sharepoint site version 2007.

I believe you can do this via the CLI using the --verify variable switch.

There's a userguide here

I am not 100% as I dont have a netshare CLI environment to check, but if you use Sharepoint do you use the CLI?  But even if you use PGP Desktop, you can set up the environment variable, check out the userguide above


I just ran that --verify switch and it outputs if a folder is encrypted or not, so inside a PGPNetShare Encrypted folder you can run pgpnetshare --verify c:\EncryptedFolder\ --verbose 

and you will get an output like this:

Processing: [c:\EncryptedFolder\]


Warning: is Unencrypted [c:\EncryptedFolder\DontWantThisEncrypted.txt\]

etc etc.

So that will be a quick way of seeing what's what.

Good luck!

Thanks weevil.

That's given me exactly what I wanted and looking at the manual it has given me some other ideas as well.

I didn't realise that I had the CLI installed until your post.

Thanks again for your help.
