To create a PGP Portable Disk from a folder
|Note: If the folder you are using to create the PGP Portable Disk is on a read-only device (such as CD or DVD), a Save As dialog box is displayed. Browse for the location on your local drive where you want the PGP Portable Disk destination folder to be created and click Save.
When completed, the destination folder is created. The folder name is the source folder name with "-PGP Portable" appended to the name.
The PGP Portable Disk File (pgpportable.pgd) contains within it all files found in the original target folder. The PGP Portable Disk File is encrypted to the passphrase specified.
Be sure that you do not delete any of these files from the PGP Portable Disk.
|Note: Be sure that you burn only the contents of the folder to disc, and not the folder itself. If you burn the folder to a disc, PGP Portable will not automatically launch on systems where autorun is enabled.
