2.   If you are starting Encryptainer for the first time, it asks you to specify the properties of the Encryptainer vault file to be created. This is described further in the Creating the Encryptainer vault section.  
3.   On subsequent starts, Encryptainer asks you for the password to load the volume. Enter the password, and click OK.

4.   Once the Encryptainer vault is loaded, you work with the ghost Encryptainer drive as explained in the working with the Encryptainer drive section.  
5.   When you no longer need your encrypted files, you either Unload the drive or Shut Down Encryptainer. This protects your encrypted information by removing the Encryptainer drive containing your files. Now, no one can access them without the password.     
star_s TIP:  
If you minimize or close your Encryptainer window, it is hidden. Any loaded volume still remains loaded. But, you can always see this Encryptainer window by double-clicking on its icon that appears on your icon bar.
