We provided a few tips for creating an encrypted disk image from a certain folder. It may have happened more than once to wish that you had password protected folders in your Mac for keeping other away from your personal things.
- Firstly, go to Applications -> Utilities and open Disk Utilities
- Select “File” -> “New” -> “Disk Image from Folder”
- Afterwards select the folder you wish to be transformed into an encrypted drive and click “Image”
- Change the settings to Image Format to “read/write” and Encryption to “128-bit AES”
- For finishing the procedure you need to select a strong password or generate one by the Black key icon. Remember to uncheck the option with “Remember password in my keychain” and press OK
*Note: Read/Write is mostly used for adding and removing documents from the encrypted file so if you just want to keep it under secret choose another Image Format
The encryption process may take a while if the folder is lager or if you possess a Mac that is not that advanced. Check the encryption by locating the file and trying to mount it in the Finder and you’ll need to enter your password. Always uncheck the box with the option “Remember password in my keychain”.
