Fast {en|de}cryption with 7z

I was in need of a flexible encryption solution for a large amount of files. After trying VHD with Veracrypt which was not fast and flexible enough for my use case. I resorted to 7z with no compression. Your files are encrypted and protected

7z.exe a -p -mx=0 -mhe -t7z -sdel -v4000M .\<dir_of_your_7z_dir>\>your_archive.7z> .\<yourfilelocation>

  • a | archive
  • p | password
  • mx=0 | no compression
  • mhe |encrypt file names in archive
  • t |type of archive
  • -sdel | after creation delete source files
  • -v4000M | split archive in 4000MB files

Ofcourse this can be done by the mouse as well but i recommend doing this in a shell on your OS. 7zip is multi-platform so this commands work so expect these commands to render the same results.
