I have been researching the possibility of using the Zip -e command in Linux to encrypt and compress a file with success. I am trying to find out if there is a script or someone can help me create one that i can run to automate password protection and compression of an entire directory. Please someone help me, it would be greatly appreciated and would help me get out of a big protection problem at the workplace. Thanks.
as far as i know the limitation on the files is 2gb for ZIP encryption. Is there a way to bypass that limit?
I'm really looking for a way to tar, zip or rar a directory with password protection. I've tried to no avail with the ZIP utility as one employees backups are around 3gb and everyone else's being around 900mb and two others 1.5gb.
I'm looking for a hint that can help me with this issue. I'm very familiar with many parts of linux shell scripting, but perl scripting and others like it i am not. If someone has a solution using one of these languages, i would be more than happy to learn.
tar -cjf - /export/PrimeView/Staff | gpg -c --output backup.tar.bz2.gpg
thank you so much for the help..
Is there a windows utility that could help me decrypt and get this information back. Plus, what is the code to untar in linux?
It seems to be working though, you guys are the best.
