Editors' Review

+

USB drives are simple to carry, but easy to misplace and that can be risky with sensitive information. Rohos Mini Drive is a freeware app that safeguards personal documents by creating a password-protected partition on your flash drive. The download actually installs two programs. One, Rohos Mini Drive, is the partition manager that self-installs as a portable app on the drive when you create the partition. The second, Rohos Disk Browser, is a portable file manager, which can be useful when the encrypted partition can't be read by the host computer.

Operating Rohos Mini Drive is fairly straightforward. Plug in your portable drive and start the program. You should see three choices: Set up USB flash drive, Change password, and Options. Setting up the drive requires choosing a password--that's it. Depending on the size of the drive, creating the partition should happen reasonably quickly. Once the partition has been created, you can change the disk size and partition drive letter. The Rohos Disk Browser displays and manipulate items in the protected partition. Single-click functions include open, saving, deleting, and displaying file properties. Searching and opening the partition is also easily selected from a short pull-down menu.

Rohos Mini Drive includes features to open the protected drive on systems where the user doesn't have administrator rights. That makes this app easy to use anywhere from public library labs to your best friend's system. We can easily recommend this app for all experienced users needing to transport personal files.

"This is amazing software"

December 07, 2012  |  By darkflameq

 |  Version: Rohos Mini Drive 1.9

Pros

Secure Data
Secure USB drive

Cons

Requires administration permissions (not the programs fault, that's Microsoft's fault).

Thus it won't work with work limited accounts unless you get IT to install the program.

Summary

There is a big difference between free and paid versions, the free one is limited to only a 2gb partition and doesn't have the auto map feature.

If you only need 2gb of secure data and don't mind manually mapping the drive each time, stick with the free version.

"Excellent Software"

October 17, 2011  |  By dragondownloud

 |  Version: Rohos Mini Drive 1.8.1

Pros

Encrypts well, works for many things, can always open it

Cons

Only a certain amount can be encrypted, refuses to properly encrypt an entire drive.

Summary

A good software that will encrypt a piece of a drive for useful storage, this works well for personal documents and other things, very user friendly and easy to figure out.

"Junk... Pure Junk."

September 06, 2011  |  By parchoffi4j

 |  Version: Rohos Mini Drive 1.8.1

Pros

Not a single one.

Cons

Puts a 2Gb partition on your thumb drive and has no instructions on how to add to the partition or how to delete the partition, so now I have a thumb drive with 2Gb of unusable space. Also, would not recognize my password.

Summary

This program is flat out AWFUL and CNET editors should be ashamed of themselves for giving this such a positive review. They lost almost all credibility with me today. This is program pitiful.

"Alternative name: USB thrasher"

November 30, 2010  |  By stigbjarne

 |  Version: Rohos Mini Drive 1.8

Pros

None whatsoever.

Cons

It does not work, except from the fact that it can encrypt a section, password protect it and then deny ANY access to it with the previous created password. It also denies formatting, so the disk therefore is wrecked.

Summary

Worse than crap.
