Hi Manuel,

I wrote myself a small encryption program that has an option to unencrypt and 
display files entirely in RAM. The unencrypted file is never written to disk 
unless I want it to be.

If you do any programming, and if these are text files, it would be fairly 
simple to write a program that would open, edit and reencrypt without the 
unencrypted file ever touching the hard disk.
