I have a Galaxy S4 with Lollipop five.0.1.
I am trying to countersign encrypt specific files and folders on my Micro SD Card, to no avail. My phone isn’t rooted and I’grand not planning on rooting information technology anytime before long.
I’ve tried using Folder Locker… but that no longer supports SD locking. I also tried ES File Manager and Lock… but both give weird error messages when the files are on the SD card.
I have no issues encrypting them on the internal SD Storage…. merely some of my files are too big to encrypt there first and and then copy to the MicroSD.
Hither are some pics of the errors
ES File Director
Anyone know what is causing this???
I’ve tried multiple things i found on Google, but none of them worked.
I apreciate your assistance

Apps can no longer write wherever they want on th SD carte du jour, it’s no longer “external storage”, it’due south part of the file system and treated like any other part. If an app doesn’t accept permissions to a binder, information technology can’t admission that folder.
You accept to root to change that behavior, since a system file has to be modified. Once the phone is rooted, NextApp SDFix: KitKat Writable MicroSD (root) will brand the changes yous need.

I was seeing that, when I was googling it, only ES File Director has a process that should give permission to write to the SD Bill of fare in Lollipop.
I can actually write to the SD Card after doing that procedure that gives permissions to that app. I tin copy files to it, using ES Managers File Browser, brand folders and write files.
I merely can’t encrypt the files with a password while those files are resident on the SD Card.
Am I missing something hither regarding
I don’t take enough space to put the files on my device, outset, that I want to password protect.
If I tin’t put a countersign on specific files or folders on the SD Card, does anybody have any other suggetions on how to accomplish this?
Even so, like I said earlier, Lollipop did prompt me to give write permissions to ES File Manager, so I don’t understand why it isn’t working… technically information technology should.

Am I mistaken about permissions existence granted in ES File Explorer?
If I am, does anybody accept any other suggestions other than rooting?

Found a workaround for this upshot, see method i at Kitkat (Android iv.4) and External SD Card | Tin can Share.
Create on the external SD a folder named
(this is for ES Iron pro, not-pro users probably need
Any file or binder within this folder volition be encrypted past ES explorer without bug.
You lot might desire to move the files/folders to exist encrypted up and down to this identify, just I just added a folder shortcut to the Favorites pane in the ES Explorer fast access menu.
