Editors' Review

+

This is easily one of the more useful freeware file encryption programs we've found, and the latest version fixes a few minor bugs. Kruptos 2's file menu and icon interface is the picture of simplicity. Encryption is almost effortless. You can drag and drop files to the Kruptos 2 window, and the latest version adds support for dragging and dropping folders.

The encryption algorithm is Blowfish 128-bit, and fast. A key feature obfuscates file names but leaves folder names unaltered. The program offers a feature to see original file names with the proper password, but it is invoked one file at a time. However, Windows integration means you can perform all functions from your context menu.

Unlike many similar programs, files in nested folders are all quickly encrypted as individual files. With a single click you can decrypt a file and edit it, and the file re-encrypts on close. Self-extracting encrypted files are created with a minimum of fuss. The Shred function deletes original files to DOD standards. The program does offer a nag screen for donations, but only once. Kruptos2, with all its features, is what every user needing simple file encryption desires.

"It works, but the features are insufficient"

February 16, 2012  |  By tony7896

 |  Version: Kruptos 2 Professional 3.0.0.20

Pros

It encrypts your files.

Cons

Features for "Projects" are non-existent.

Wouldn't you think projects would have passwords? Nope-- they can be different for every file.

"Add folder" adds the files currently in the folder to the project, not the folder itself, and will not automatically add new files in the folder when you go to encrypt.

"Disguise file names" conceals the file names, but not the names of the folders, which often reveal quite a bit.

The navigation panel is useless! Why not model it after the Windows navigation panel? It comes up cluttered with stuff on your desktop. Once I open a project, I only want to navigate through the directories in the folder. Why keep showing me my desktop and every file on my computer? You can only use it to add folders to the project, which you can easily do with "Add Folders".

No option to see the passwords as you type them in. Because of this I almost lost an entire collection of photographs. Luckily I thought to try typing in the password with CAPS LOCK on.

Summary

Surely there's something better!

"Excellent Program"

January 18, 2012  |  By Charro2012

 |  Version: Kruptos 2 Professional 3.0.0.20

Pros

Quick and easy to use.

Cons

The Dividing line between the Left Source Files Pane and the Right File(s) processing Pane always defaults back to its original position upon closure of the program resulting in readjustment upon opening the program.

Summary

Very good, except for the above small but irritating shortcoming.
