We've made it as simple as possible to protect files using Atakama. All you need to do is make sure that the files you want to protect are located within the Atakama virtual drive. The Atakama virtual drive works just like any other drive or folder on your computer. 

Here are some tips and tricks you should know:

  1. You can protect files and folders by simply dragging them to the Atakama virtual drive. You can also save files directly to your Atakama virtual drive.

  2. If you are using Atakama with a cloud storage provider, you'll see a sub-folder inside of your Atakama virtual drive for that service. To access and sync protected files with that service, just place files inside the sub-folder.

  3. Files protected by Atakama stay protected at all times, but your Atakama virtual drive and the protected files inside be hidden when the application is closed. Make sure Atakama is running to access and save new protected files.

  4. Make sure you are moving files to your Atakama virtual drive instead of copying them. Copying files to the Atakama virtual drive will leave the original versions of those files unprotected in their original locations.
