Editors' review

This handy application builds encrypted data vaults that can be stored on your computer or other storage devices, though we found a quirk during testing. DiskScience's standard, bare-bones interface is easy to follow, and a wizard provides step-by-step instructions for creating secured virtual disks. In our tests, we generated a new drive in just a matter of seconds, and could easily access files and perform operations like copy, move, and delete just like on normal drives. Virtual drives can be any size, with simple but effective settings so they'll automatically mount on startup and automatically lock after a period of inactivity. Click once and the drive is disabled and can't be seen. Aside from password protection, the program also supports a few tough-to-crack algorithms like Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Digital Encryption Standard (DES), and Gemstone.

We'd give DiskScience a good rating for its performance, despite its drab appearance, except for the flawed option to use CD or DVD images for the virtual disk. We were able to create and mount the disk, but our test computers didn't recognize the format when we tried to access its contents. Even so, DiskScience offers a straightforward approach to securing data, and its virtual disks are easy to manage.
