From LittleLite Software:
With Folder Crypt you can password protect any Windows folder using low level encoding and standard algorithms, such as such as DES, Rijndael, Blowfish and ARC4 with keys up to 2048 bits. The program performs a true bit per bit encryption of your data. All you have to do is to supply a password or passphrase, which will be turned into a strong password by an hashing function. The encryption process is not reversible (you can decrypt the folder only if you know the correct passphrase). Your encrypted folder will appear as a .crypt file in place of the original folder. Original files and folders may be shredded. Opening, editing and listing folder contents is password protected. Full international characters support.
What's new in this version: Version 3.6 is now fully compatible with Windows 8; adds estimated time remaining on long operations; new setup program includes both 32 and 64 bit versions.

"Not all shiny."
Version: Folder Crypt 3.5.1001
v.3.5.1001 works ok, I got the 64bit version.
Nice interface several encryption options.
You can encrypt a bunch of files or folders into one, and open that file to read one of them in the program and just close the file afterwards with the option to save changes.
After first have it installed on my laptop
and then used it on my workstation the license lock up
and I can't use it on any now.
So I have to use a demo on a "pristine" machine to unlock the files.
It does not feel ok that the app take your file hostage after a machine change.
There is no customer portal to edit your activations.
I have now switched to Sophos were there is always a free version
to access the encrypted data.
"Good encryption, but expensive and unstable"
Version: Folder Crypt 2.8 build 3707
This is very easy software to encript folders and files with simple right click features.
The application was a little unstable, meaning that it has crashed on me a few times, which is very annoying, and a bit scary. Plus, it is a little expensive at $30.
"Powerful encryption and easy to use"
Version: Folder Crypt 2.5
I like the easy of use of this software and the fact that it encrypts an entire folder with a single right click. My "hacker guru" friend was not able to decrypt or hack a folder encrypted with "Folder Crypt", and he is a real genius, so this fact let me affirm that Folder Crypt is a a robust and reliable encryption tool.
Also, as far as I can say, this product is lightweight and it never intereferes with other programs or the operating system (this should be due to the fact that it runs under .NET Framework).
So far, nothing.
"Program crashed every time"
Version: Folder Crypt 2.5
The only good thing I can say about this program is that it was easy to install & uninstall.
My system: Toshiba Laptop w/256Mb RAM, running WinXP Home w/SP2 & all current Microsoft patches....Every time I tried to run the program, it crashed. I repeatedly installed & uninstalled the program after each crash & it still crashed every time. I was never able to encrypt any files or folders &, on my first attempt to use this program, I only tried to encrypt one file....When uninstalled, the program leaves its folder behind in the Program Files directory, but it leaves no files behind. However, it does not undo the changes it has made to the registry.
"Fast, effective folder encryption"
Version: Folder Crypt 2.1
I like the way Folder Crypt encrypts my data, and especially the fact I can edit documents or view images inside encrypted folders. Also it's very well integrated in Windows. I never had a problem, and I'm using it for months.
It's a pity there's no a command line version: I'd like to automate encryption in batch processes...
"Damaged instead of Protection"
Version: Folder Crypt 2.1
1) Opened Folder Crypt
2) Clicked green toolbar icon to encrypt.
3) Chosed a folder
4) Entered a password
5) Clicked encrypt
6) Got a error message
7) The original folder disappeared, i lost all my most important data (over 200 usernames/passwords, phone numbers) and they can not really help me. they asked me to locate this file .crypt.tmp, but this file does not exist. their moderator removes all negative post from their support forum, leaving only the "success!" ones. thnx.
