Editors' review

This program offers a much more convenient interface than most encryption utilities, by acting as a virtual drive you can place anywhere on your PC. You can access encrypted drives and perform operations, such as copying, transferring, and compressing files from within any application. Also, Cryptainer LE makes it easy to hide all your sensitive information by letting you remove the virtual drive with a single click. You can run the application on any 32-bit Windows system or network with the assurance that its 128-bit Blowfish encryption will keep your data safe. Since the program lets you create self-decrypting executable files, you can send secure documents to anyone, even if that person doesn't have Cryptainer LE installed. The application didn't slow our system's performance during testing, though the free version creates volumes of up to only 25MB, which is still enough for working with office documents. If you can't exert much energy on file security, you'll find Cryptainer LE the perfect tool.

    "Version 10 still occasionally freezes - Windows 7"

    September 11, 2014   |   By camcolo

    Version: Cypherix PE 10.0


    Easy to Use
    Good encryption (does NSA have a back door into this?).


    Sometimes will crash and close. Cannot halt the process through Windows and must reboot the computer. Encrypted directory seems to stay open!

    "generally good but occasionally causes system freeze"

    April 11, 2014   |   By thrip

    Version: Cypherix PE 10.0


    1.usually efficient
    3.portable - I use it to encrypt files on my hard drive, USB stick, and CD's and DVD's and this has worked flawlessly for me.


    my only gripe is that every third or fourth time i use it on my system - Windows 7 with Cryptainer PE Ver 7.1 - it freezes and i need to reboot. Not sure if an upgrade to a newer version will correct this problem.


    for my uses, it works wonderfully except for the freezing (which never occurs on my home computer running Windows XP, suggesting maybe a problem between Win 7 and Cryptainer PE Ver 7.1 ) ??
