Ability to Password Protect Entire Zip Archive?

May 29, 2008 at 2:44 AM
I see in 1.4 (And 1.5) that it is possible to password protect individual files within a zip archive, and I think this is a very nice feature.  I was wondering though if it would be possible in a future release to allow for password protecting of the entire zip archive as well.  There are times when it would be nice to be able to stop all access to the archive.  I don't know what's involved in doing this though.  I see zip programs that accomplish this, but the how I am unaware of.  This would be very cool though.  :-)

Thanks Again,

I posted this as a work item.

It would be cool, I agree.  It's also lots of work.  I don't know when or if I will be able to get to this.

Oh, cool.  Thanks.  I wasn't sure what would be involved in this, but this would definitely be a great addition to the utility.  I hope this is able to be worked into the utility sometime soon.  This utility really is incredibly well done.

Thanks Again,
