How does the file encryption and decryption process work?

SmartEncrypt encrypts and decrypts your data on-the-fly. When working with files there is no need for bulk decryption as the user can simply double click on the encrypted files and automatically decrypt before opening or open them directly through the application. For example, if a user wants to open an encrypted Word Document they double click on it, or open it from inside Microsoft Word via the open command and select the file.

If a file is located within an encrypted folder, the file is automatically encrypted again when any changes are saved so data is protected without worrying about the cryptographic process behind it.
