Issue/Introduction

When user copies files to the removable media, user should get the prompt to encrypt files. If User wants, he should be able to cancel the prompt and copy files without encryption to removable media. Else, he can continue with encryption and copy files to removable media. Currently if user cancels the prompt, user cannot copy the files. User can choose from the "Default to Encrypt new files" or "Default to do not encrypt", but if user selects "Default to do not encrypt", user doesn't get the prompt to encrypt.

Request enhancement : - 1. User needs a prompt before encrypting any files. This prompt must have option to either continue or cancel. 2. If cancelled, the file must be copied to the removable storage without being encrypted. 3. If user continue, then the file must be encrypted and copied to the removal storage.
