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.

"10 stars program"

February 28, 2007  |  By barakat_khaled

 |  Version: Cryptainer LE 6.1

Pros

Nothing better than what they said about the software "creates a volume (vault) that can only be accessed with a password. This volume stores files in the encrypted form. Once mounted, the Cryptainer drive is like any other drive you normally work with"

"Great tool, outstanding usability!"

February 13, 2007  |  By tonythi

 |  Version: Cryptainer LE 6.1

Pros

I looked at a variety of similar programs but only this has all of what I needed: Proper time stamp management, so that I can backup the container file (time stamp changes only when writing to the container); proper releasing of handles, so that Win2000/XP doesn't complain about not being able to move/erase the container file because it is still in use; quick mounting; persisten drive letter assignment.

Cons

The program insists on having a default container which is always opened first when the program is started.

 |  Version: Cryptainer LE 6.1

Pros

very great thanks to the developer. It is very user friendly and easy to used.

"Not quite what I was looking for"

October 12, 2006  |  By Morpurgo.nl

 |  Version: Cryptainer LE 6.1

Pros

If you need a place to store your docs secure this could be great.

Cons

The program makes a encrypted space on your disk but outside this "container" you can not encrypt so far I can tell. If you want to email encrypted files you have to get them out of the container....

"Excellent!"

October 08, 2006  |  By vinnie1337

 |  Version: Cryptainer LE 6.1

Pros

Easy to use, secure, fast and, best of all, FREE! It has a max vloume size of 25 mb, but just create multiple volumes to bypass this.

Cons

I think that you can only create 4 volumes, but I haven't checked. If it's true, it means you can only encrypt 100 mb of files (remember that Office docs are almost always under 1 mb - almost because of lengthy, media-filled PowerPoints).

"Good, but TrueCrypt is lots better."

August 07, 2006  |  By crasssr

 |  Version: Cryptainer LE 6.1

Pros

Can encrypt files.

Cons

Only stores 25 megabytes. (TrueCrypt can store 8.5 billion gigs!) Has no encryption options. (TrueCrypt has 11!) Hint: Try using TrueCrypt first.

"Fantastic!! Must have!!"

July 30, 2006  |  By richbot

 |  Version: Cryptainer LE 6.1

Pros

Encrypt anything you want (within 25mb) and safley password protect it!! Your files are put carefully into a drive of your choice- eg y or z ,and when you have finished editing your encrypted files the drive will disapear from your computer meaning no one can access the encrpted files unless you enter the password in the software and the drive will reappear! Fantastic and better than my expectations.

Cons

It's a shame there is a 25mb limit. After using this product for quite a while i'm quite sure this software is not spyware (just 4 u spyware conserned people!)!

"You can carry on searching, but why bother"

July 05, 2006  |  By rightproperty.com

 |  Version: Cryptainer LE 6.1

Pros

It took minutes to download, minutes to install, minutes to understand and minutes to use. There is a very simple interface which is easy to follow and leaves little room for misunderstanding.

If you want to secure sensitive files such as passwords which you can store on your pc or on a USB key, this is a good tool for most.

No technical knowledge required, just some common sense and possibly a bit of a play around to get used to the main functionality.

Cons

If you like the software you will start to use it regularly and the size limitiation means you will want to upgrade to the paid version or mess around with installing new folders of the same software to get more space.

My only real concern is that I couldn't see how to secure a folder with lots of files and store it on a USB key. I could only secure and transfer individual files.

"Easy to use and safe"

May 14, 2006  |  By fluffy_red_cloud

 |  Version: Cryptainer LE 6.1

Pros

Locks off a section of your hard drive, with password protection. Even if you uninstall the program, the locked off section stays fully protected. A good program...especially if you have things to hide ;)

Cons

The free version, restricts the size of the protected area, but it's still very useful.
