Does a method exist for storing relative paths along with files added to a PGP encrypted package? I'm looking to have a full folder structure with containing files created when the data is decrypted.

Thank you for a good question.

Right now the paths are stripped from the filenames so there's no way to do what you want without changing the source code.

In the upcoming version 13 you'll be able to set the newly added PreseveFilePaths property to true and then pass the filename together with the path to EncryptFiles() and similar methods, and the pathname will be preserved in the archive.

Sincerely yours
Eugene Mayevski
