Problem:  The --reencrypt-delta method requires a mandatory parameter –recipient... which is valid if you would like to add a new user to a NetShare folder.  However, if you simply want to renecrypt all files that were added to an existing NetShare protected folder via methods outside of NetShare... this is not possible unless you add a user or reiterate users that already exists in the NetShare folder configuration.

Solutions:  Make the --recipient parameter an optional parameter for at least the --renecrypt-delta command and possibly other PGPNetShare.exe commands as well.  The absence of --recipient will simply rencrypt all files based on the Netshare folder configuration.

I helped work on this case, and totally agree with BMHart on how --reencrypt-delta should work for Netshare Command Line.
