Step 1: E.V.D File

the PGP desktop will mount the image file for you after you crate the pgp disk file
but if don't just double click to open ou left click to menu.

Step 2: Passphrase

Step 3: New Virtual Disk Show on My Computer

Step 4: Copying the Files to the E.v.d

Step 5: Unmouting the Virtual Drive

Step 6: Extras Files on Cd

I like to create a esmall folder to put some extras files om my cd.

Step 7: Burning the Files on Dvd.

Please don't use Nero to burn the PGP file, this pgp file is very big ( up to 4GB) .
i have lost many dvds trying to burn big file with nero, i recommend you
to use the avs cd dvd creator is freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee and work 100%

this is the link for you download
avs avs

Step 8: Final Step

now you can delete the pgp file on your pc

if you like to burn another dvd you don't have to create another pgp file just mount the pgp file on your computer again and replace the files in side the virtual drive.

to use de virtual drive just mup the cd on your dvd drive and mount de pgp disk file

sory for my por inglish .

    Instead of going through all these steps, why not download software. I use Data Protecto and it has been running fine. All i have to do is click and my files get encrypted. I can also lock my folders with the same software Data Protecto so why go for complicated steps which i might forget at some point of time. Guys try Data Protecto instead.

    linking to pirated software is not cool. if you choose to steal it that's your business, but don't tell others to

    TruCrypt is very good to. and is free but have lot of bugs. the commercial version of pgp is more instavel. if you go to make large files, ( 10 to 100 GB ) probable the TruCrypt ll' crash more times.

    Why not just use TruCrypt you can make it WAY harder to get into (AES,TwoFish,Serpent, all at the same time if you want to) and its easer to use!
