I did this, and it came up with the same error message. Should I encrypt a
large file using a similar format? I tried doing this, but I couldn't find
the correct syntax to properly encrypt the file.

This is the type of command I used (not the exact syntax).

gpg -e --default-recipient-self < large_plaintext.txt  (??)
