If you are on a unix box, use 'find' to encrypt your files.

 $ find /some/path -type f -exec /path/to/my_script \{\} \;

where my_script contains:
# if everything goes as planned, the original files get deleted.
gpg -e -r my_encryption_keyid "$1" && rm -f "$1"

For a wholesale encryption of directories use 'cfs'.
