The context menu of a folder in NT file system can also have commands to safeguard the files. Encrypting the valuable data is a very sensible thing to do. It safeguards the data contained in the folder.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create a DWORD value “EncryptionContextMenu”, if this value does not exist.

Now, right-click and modify the value to “1” which can add “Encrypt” command to the context menu. However, if you want to show the original options back, change the value data to “0” or delete the “EncryptionContextMenu” value.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
