*In the process, you will be asked if you want to copy the file/folder or move it to a locker.

If you choose to copy - the original file/folder will stay unencrypted on your device and only a duplicate of it will be encrypted with NordLocker.

If you select to move the file/folder to a locker, then the original file will be encrypted and will not remain in its original location.
