Description: This video provides an overview of the “Zip Encrypt” and “Drive Info” tabs using the File Manipulator plug-in.

Transcript:
Let’s take a closer look at File Manipulator operations. Let’s begin with Compression and Encryption. So I’ve opened the demo file, and I’ve already registered the plug-in in “LIVE” mode. Next let’s navigate to the “Zip Encrypt” tab. This tab has file manipulations including zip, unzip, encrypt, and decrypt.

0:33 The “Zip File” button will zip a file from the Source Path into the Destination Path. Specify the Source Path here. Next add the Destination Path. Then add the Destination File name with a .zip extension. Select the “Zip File” button. A result of 0 means success. Here is the newly compressed zip file.

1:15 “Unzip File” will uncompress a .zip file’s contents from the Source Path to the Destination Path. I’ll go ahead and specify the Source Path. Next I’ll add a Destination Path. Destination File name is not needed here. Then select “Unzip File.” Here is the uncompressed file.

1:53 “Encrypt File” will encrypt a file from the Source Path and move it to the Destination Path. Let’s specify the Source and Destination Paths. Next add a Destination File name with an extension. Then add a password. Select “Encrypt File.” Here is the encrypted PDF file.

2:29 “Decrypt File” will decrypt an encrypted file from the Source Path and move it to the Destination Path. Let’s specify the Source and Destination Paths. Add a Destination File name with an extension. Next add a password. Select “Decrypt File.” Here is the decrypted PDF.

3:07 The “Zip & Encrypt File” button will zip a Source file into the Destination Path and encrypt its data. Let’s add the Source Path and a Destination Path. Then add a Destination File name with a .zip extension. Enter a password, and select the “Zip & Encrypt” button. Here is the newly zipped file with encryption.

3:46 “Unzip & Decrypt File” will unzip a Source file into the Destination Path, and decrypt its data. I’ll add the previously zipped and encrypted file as the Source Path. I’ll keep the Destination Path the same. The Destination File name is not needed. Enter a password, then select “Unzip & Decrypt File.” Here is the uncompressed and decrypted file.

4:21 Next let’s take a look at obtaining Drive Information. Here I have the “Drive Info” tab open, and the drive has been specified here in the Source Path.

4:36 “Get Drives” will return a list of all your valid drives.

4:42 “Get Folders” will return all folder names in the drive.

4:49 “Get Files” returns a list of all file names within the drive.

4:56 The “Num Subfolder” button shows the drive’s number of subfolders.

5:02 The “Num Files” button returns the number of files in the drive.

5:09 “Drive Size” will return the total size of the drive in bytes.
