You can download an encrypted file to locally read or edit it. The file remains encrypted on the server.

How to download an encrypted file:

  1. In the Drive app, select an encrypted file in the display area. Click the View icon in the toolbar.

    Note: If you click on Download in the toolbar or context menu instead, the downloaded file remains encrypted.

  2. If the Enter Guard security password window opens, enter the Guard security password.

    You can define how long the security password should be remembered by Guard. To do so, enable Remember my password. Select a value from the list.

    In the Guard security settings, you can define a default value for the time range.

    Click on OK.
