Previous versions have been excellent
I have just installed BCArchive 2.05.
The way the temporary directory is wiped has now changed in this version. Without warning the program now kills the ENTIRE DIRECTORY - before it just killed the individual files it created [often it did not do this properly either].
I have now lost important files - fortunately I have made backups.
The options to kill the "Wiping process" also does not work. Yes a dialog box appears but when you select Yes to abort- it just keeps on deleting!
Also the AutoRun function is broken in this version as well.
I'm hoping you can resolve the above issues - I have used this product for years and found it very good to date....
Very nice encryption packager to use on folders and files. Once you become familiar with the how-tos. You have a choice of several high-end encryptions which is what make this program worth having.
Easy "right click" to begin encrypting any folder or file.
There is another freeware from this site called "BCTraveller" which is also worth checking out. It's a portable encryption software which can make and run AES (Rijndael) - KG Ghost encrypted containers so you can carry it anywhere and access the data on any computer available. As the name Suggest, good for travelling.
None at this time. Aside from taking a few minutes to learn....all worked as it says.
nothing at all
I've 2 GB Ram, After this Prog. my PC Ram act like 2 MB
your pc will slow down
Provides Good Encryption. This program may be for you if you ONLY want basic encryption that's easy.
TrueCrypt (also free) integrates nicely with windows, and quite frankly is the best encryption freebie I have found. It also offers a hidden volume within your encrypted file for anyone who REALLY wants to secure their data.
its ok but was too easy to crack
Version Misled therefore thumbsdown.
This encryption software has a user friendly appeal to it and uses advanced encryption algorithms to protect files. Not much more to be said. If you need encryption, this is an ideal method of doing it.
Minor bugs, nothing too signficant to note
I use this software in addition to my favorite security app WinGuard Pro (which allows me to password protect my programs and personal files/folders). This is a great additonal to my security collection
I just wish there was one tool that did it all!
This is the best free encryption software I have found. It uses VERY powerful encryption algorithms, making it very secure. It also has the option of using public key encryption, which is very useful for sending information over the Internet. I also found it was very quick, even compared to some non-freeware software. This is a very good piece of software.
There are a few minor things that are not included, like securely deleting the original data. It would also be nice if it included integration into the file system, so you could negotiate BCAcives within windows, and not in the program.
BCArchive compresses files into an archive and has options for various encryption methods. Password-based algorithms and public-key encryption methods are available. The program will let you know if it thinks your password for the archive is too short and will prevent you from using the short password. There is also an option for no encryption or password protection.
There a few minor issues.
The version listed here at the time of this review ("BCArchive 3.07.3") is incorrect. In the "About" section of the program, the version listed is "BCArchive v. 1.06.5 for Windows." At the time of this review, on the publisher's website, under lastest fixes, the version listed is "1.06."
If you drag-and-drop to extract a file, you may have trouble deleting the file from the archive. You will have to restart the program so that you can delete the file that is in the archive.
Also, the modified times of an extracted file and its original are different by a few hours. For some reason (it's a bug), the program changes the modified time of an archived/extracted file and its original with a few hours' difference.
In an email from the publisher's support, the person who sent the reply was able to reproduce both errors. She apologized and said that the errors will be fixed in the near future.
