    "Use the original: TrueCrypt"

    May 02, 2013   |   By Byterrr

    Version: Odin HDD Encryption 9.8.3

    Pros

    Use the original & free version: TrueCrypt

    Cons

    Using a hex editor on 9.8.3 (2 years later...) and a simple ascii search of truecrypt you can find 90+ instances of it..... beyond that the interface has indeed been altered much more since my initial post, different even than the screenshot posted here as of the day of this post (the one that still looks like truecrypt) resulting in a numbed down program that can only do part of what the original can.

    Summary

    Shame on this 'dev' and even you CNET for not removing this by now, this is a hacked up/half functional ripoff of truecrypt, open OdinHDDEncryption.exe (version 9.8.3|3,740,672 bytes|CRC32 635d0348|MD5 134036316c4f035e921820f4d80df7dd) up with a hex editor and do a quick search yourself. I won't be surprised if they get around to fixing it in future releases but for now the evidence remains in their own file with almost a hundred instances of "truecrypt" remaining in plain text!!

    Version: Odin HDD Encryption 4.2

    Pros

    compare with other program,this program can protect the encrypt data from virus affection. And most important,it is very easy to operate! I don't agree with byterrr opion. I think he do not download and try the program yet!

    Cons

    the icon can not be viewed in the taskbar

    "Direct rip-off of the open source solution 'truecrypt'"

    September 30, 2010   |   By Byterrr

    Version: Odin HDD Encryption 4.2

    Pros

    None, this is stolenware

    Cons

    Don't use this software, it is a direct rip-off of the open source solution 'truecrypt'

    Summary

    Don't use this software, it is a direct rip-off of the open source solution 'truecrypt'. The GUI is barely changed, the driver it loads is still labeled as truecrypt. This author is nothing but a thief and should have all of his software checked and removed by CNET editors for further breaches of public licenses as most likely they are all rip-offs.

    Updated on Oct 9, 2010

    My issue isn't that this program is not good..and I have indeed tested it or I could not have found that my security program asked me if I should allow it to load a driver labeled 'truecrypt' when it was run. My issue is that this is a rip-off of an open source solution that 'Odin Share Company' is attempting to sell. Even a cursory glance at the screenshots shown for each product display an identical layout with the only difference being the fanciness of Odin's buttons. If that is all they changed then it probably is a good product but users should stick with the original unmodified, 'free' product.
