Editors' Review

+

Despite a cluttered interface, this app proved simple to use and lets you quickly and securely store data files in a password-protected form embedded within media files.

SuperStorm initially looks confusing--its interface is cluttered with buttons, a number of fields, and some amateurish graphics. The appearance is a bit deceptive; what looks somewhat childishly designed actually works pretty well and is easy to use.

In our tests, this free app performed well. Selecting a data file and a media file in which to embed it was a simple matter of dragging an item in the apps file browser to the selected graphic. Clicking Execute created a new Output file--the media file with the embedded data file--in a matter of moments. We were then able to save it where we wished. There was no discernible change to the new media file, except that it was slightly larger than its original from 5,175KB to 5,775KB for one test item.

Creating a password to protect the new file is just as simple a process. Novices will quickly master this app. Experienced users may prefer a more robust app for securing sensitive files, but SuperStorm isn't really designed for industrial workouts.

"Can hide files and folders"

September 20, 2007  |  By scott_green

 |  Version: SuperStorm 1.52

Pros

In my humble opinion meteor713, you are being unfair here, no offense.. but truth is, I use SuperStorm daily to hide/unhide entire folder trees! Of course, the root folder should be previously compressed using XP's built-in Zip funtion or any other tool (I use WinRAR). The basic idea is to hide *any* file inside another file, including a compressed volume if you wish. As stated in the documentation, compression reduces size *and* enhances speed as well as encryption.. Therefore, claiming that it can't hide folders is inaccurate.. with all my respect to your opinion.

"brilliant! Don't understand, or pretend to know how it does it, but it does."

June 26, 2007  |  By cerneabbas1

 |  Version: SuperStorm 1.52

Pros

It does exactly what it promises. I chose the files I wished to hide and then selected a media file within which to hide them. It did as it promised and then after all this I was able to still play the resulting media file with no hint that it contained anything else. It is simple to use, and did it all in a few minutes. I was so impressed that I paid for the pro version.
