Encrypting folders and files in TaxCycle


Encrypting folders and files is a way to protect them from unwanted access. Rather than password-protecting individual files, we suggest encrypting a folder that contains all the files you want to protect.

Benefits of encrypting a folder:

  • an encrypted folder does not appear in the Client Manager so others don't have access to it
  • you don't have to worry about losing the password(s) to individual files
  • this method offers safer and better recovery options

We have a help topic about encrypting a folder in Windows. It also explains how to backup your Encrypting File System certificate and how to remove encryption from a folder on your hard drive. Read more about encrypting a folder in Windows in our help topic.
