I'm familiar with bitlocker, having been using it for a while, but I am looking at just encrypting a folder instead. But I just don't understand the options it's giving me.
When I right-click a folder > properties > advanced >
[x] encrypt contents to secure data > OK < apply > ...
() apply changes to this folder () apply changes to this folder, sub-folder and files.
This doesn't make sense to me at all, if I encrypt a folder then the whole folder, everything within it is encrypted, then why should I be given these options, how can I have a folder encrypted and files within that folder unencrypted, that seems stupid to me, it doesn't make sense at all.
Can anybody explain why these options exist and how can I simply encrypt a folder?
