Documentation is included in the package. PLEASE READ

WARNING I have seen this inform the end-user via a pop-up toast that the drive is being encrypted! You may want to warn your end-users that you are doing this otherwise you may get a lot of panicked calls with the end-user thinking they got hit by a virus that is encrypting the drive.
