How can I protect files other than .m file with Matlab compiler?

After I compiled the matlab files and other non-matlab files successfully, I found that when users run the executable files, the extraction of the executable will expand all files into temporary folders. All Matlab files are encrypted but all other files are just original files without any protection (not encrypted). Do you have any idea to protect the non-matlab files as well? Thanks.

If you want to deliver encrypted files, encrypt them before the compilation. Then you Matlab code must contain the required decryption methods.
Remember that the keys for the decryption must be included in your compiled code. Then the keys can be found more or less easily also. If the files should be read by standard methods like imread, load etc., this will not work directly. Decrypting the files at first will leave clear text data on the disk.
