PGP Netshare Command Line

Created: 10 May 2013 • Updated: 10 May 2013 | 5 comments


I am looking for a way via command line to encrypt only new files that have been added to an already encrypted share.

I was thinking the --reencrypt-delta switch would do the trick, but it seems to reencrypt everything

What options do I have to accomplish this?

One other question.
Is there a way to assign roles (like Group Admin) via command line?

Have you checked out the commandline guide for Netshare ?

--recipient-operator is what you are looking for:

Page 38ff shows all the diffrent options

Regarding only encrypt "missing" files:

--verifiy with and added encrypt command might be usefull.

You are correct that --reencrypt-delta touches all files but it only changes the metadata (around 4kb per file at Max usually smaller).

----CMD Snip---

By default, --reencrypt-delta does not re-encrypt the already encrypted data; it re-encrypts the metadata. You can force it to re-encrypt the data using --reencrypt-full as an option. 

---CMD Snip---

Great, thanks for the info.

Do you know of a way in which I can use the --verify results to encrypt unencrypted files??

Is there a way to pipe it back into an encrypt command?
Or are there some VBScript objects I can use to perform this?

I am trying right now to automate this process using VBScript

some sort of IF statement with a goto would work

Please mark posts as solutions if they solve your problem!

I think I managed to come up with something between VBScript and Command-Line script that will fit my needs.
