Decrypting a Single File

To decrypt an encrypted copy of a single file navigate to the file in Windows Explorer and click "Decrypt" or “Decrypt Copy” in its context menu:

If you choose "Decrypt" then the following dialog will be shown:

Click "Decrypt" to decrypt the file. If the required key(s) is in the local database and it is encrypted by the active MP then the file will be decrypted automatically. If the currently active MP is the MP of another Netsso  account, for example, then you will be asked to enter the correct MP. If your local database does not contain the required password key then you will be invited to update the local database. On successful updating and if the updated database contains the required key the file will be decrypted automatically.

If you choose "Decrypt Copy" then a slightly different dialog will be shown:

To proceed with decryption you first have to specify a destination folder and name for the decrypted file. Click “Browse”, choose a file and then click “Decrypt”. In this case the original file remains unchanged.
