PGP Decrypt


PGP Decrypt will decrypt files using a private key that are encrypted with a public key.  When a file is decrypted, the .pgp or .gpg extension is removed from the filename. For example, when decrypting the file text1.txt.gpg, the decrypted file will be named text1.txt. PGP keys are maintained in PGP Key Maintenance.



Property List


PGP Key- The private key to use for decryption.


Delete Original Files- Checking this will delete the original encrypted files once decrypted.


Overwrite Existing- When checked, any decrypted file that exists in the work folder with the same name will be overwritten.


File Mask- The files in the work folder to be decrypted. This property accepts wild cards such as *.gpg. Multiple paths can be created by separating them with a semicolon. For example: *.pgp;*.gpg.
