    "Product provides basic folder-level security ONLY!"

    September 11, 2006  |   By fxjamusa

    Pros

    Simple and easy to use interface. Provides basic folder-level protection. Does work to hide sensitive files against most unsuspecting Windows users.

    Cons

    As other reviewers have noted, defeating this product is trivial using Linux and I would not trust it to protect sensitive information against ID theft. Better and FREE solutions are as follows:

    CompuSec: (Whole Drive Encryption and much more!)

    TrueCrypt: (Open Source Device/Partition encryption)
