This is my first post. This is driving me batship insane. All I'm trying to do is create a password protected zip file. What I'm trying to zip is a directory that contains one file and six other directories. Each of those six directories contains a couple of files. For some reason when I go to the terminal and type zip -e desiredfilename.zip desireddirectorytozip, I get prompted twice for the password. Then it says compressing 0%. The resulting zip doesn't have any password protection on it and it's just an empty folder anyways. Am I missing a parameter? Is there an easier way? This is such a stupid problem to waste an hour on!
