I was testing out the encrypted feature and I encrypted my flashdrive but when i try to open the folder that is encrypted I get this error Screenshot.
I want to know how to add or remove files to the flashdrive and decrypt the flashdrive. Also would Eset be a good choice for encrypting files?

Check the permissions in the properties of the encrypted folder. Security tab. Is the account you are using allowed full control?
