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.

"It will be a good idea when it's finished"

November 26, 2008  |  By English Bob

 |  Version: Rohos Mini Drive 1.19

Pros

Simple and easy to use

Cons

Unable to trust it

Summary

The download from here comes up as 1.18, not 1.19.
It wouldn't do NTFS, or a disk size other than the default it gives you, despite those options being given.
If you try to enlarge the disk after creation, it asks you to upgrade your licence.
It puts stuff in the registry of the computer it's installed on - so is it really portable?
My first installation started telling me it was on a 30 day evaluation - so it isn't freeware, is it?

Bottom line - I don't want to trust my sensitive data to an application as flaky and deceptive as this. It would be a good idea, if only it lived up to its hype. Very disappointing.

"Absolute Encryption"

Pros

Password protects your files, makes an encrypted drive so you can have an unencrypted drive and an encrypted drive.

Cons

I have no cons. (If you lose your password there is NO WAY to get your files back.

Summary

Rohos is a good program to encrypt your files. For good security and to stop data theft. I rate this five star.
