Adding Folders & Files
With GhostVolt you can choose to add folders you already have on your machine or create new folders within the application before adding your files.
Add an existing Folder
To add an existing folder just click the Add Folder button in the toolbar
Then browse to your folder location, select your folder and click Open to add your folder to the repository.
Note that the folder that you add will appear under the Repository. If you don’t see your folders, be sure to expand the Repository by clicking the expand icon to the left of it
Create a new Folder
To create a new folder click the Create a new folder icon in the toolbar above the treeview on the left
Once you click on that icon, a new GhostVolt window will open, which allows you to name the folder and set some other parameters. Enter the name of your new folder, click Create, then close the window. And you're done.
Note: In this window, you can name the folder and set permissions for other users. We’ll cover that in the ‘Users’ section of help
To add a file, simply select the Add files icon in the toolbar
Then navigate to your file location, select your files and click Open in the explorer window. Your files are now secure.
Tip: To add multiple files, simply select more than one file by using CTRL key while clicking on the files you want to encrypt.
Other classic Windows shortcuts work as well...
- CTRL + A will “select all” the files you see in the open folder window.
- Click the Select All” button on the Home ribbon (Windows 10), or choose “Select All” from the EDIT drop-down menu (Windows 7 and older).
- You can “visually” select multiple files from the folder window by position your mouse above and to the left of the file icons, and then dragging your mouse down and to the right. What your mouse drags over will be selected.
You can also add files directly inside your list view while you're working...
Make sure you have the correct folder selected in the tree view on the left
In your file list view on the right Right Click on any file and select Add Files in the context menu.
Then, as before, navigate to your file location, select your files and click Open in the explorer window. Your files are now secure.
