i was hoping to do the following;
locate a source file.
place the name of the source file in a log.
encrypt the source file name and contents
add to the log the name of the encrypted file.
that way i have a list which tells me what the real name of the file is.
i can use the log to pick which file i want to decrypt.
the log will the kept locally which is secure for my purposes.
