Does encryption relate to locking?

Does encryption damage anything and what is it used for? I want to lock my device and memory card, so can encryption help me?

No, encrypting your SD card won't damage any of your files, it simply adds another security layer for your data. This will help you to keep your important personal files safe. Once you encrypt your files, you'll be asked to enter a password every time you want to access them.

Encrypted files when upgrading phones?

I have a phone running {url} and it, as well as the external SD are encrypted. I am likely going to get a phone soon and was looking for the easiest process to move my files to my new phone. I am likely going to be trading my current phone in when I get the new one, so I need to have this done ahead of time.
