How To Copy Unprotected (Mac)

This feature gives you the ability to copy encrypted files and paste them in their original file format (.doc, .xls, .pdf, .psd, etc.). When data is encrypted, its file format changes from its original file format to .zip format.

In order to ensure that your data is truly secure, it is encrypted no matter where it goes. If you copy an encrypted .zip file, it will be pasted as an encrypted .zip file and will not be accessible without nCrypted Cloud. This is where Copy Unprotected comes in. 


To Copy Unprotected, right click the file or folder you wish to copy and select “Copy Unprotected”. 


Paste the item you just Copy Unprotected.  

As you can see, the file was pasted in its original format (left). If you copied the file without using Copy Unprotected, the file will remain encrypted and in .zip format (right).
