    "Was working ok, until drive disconnected!"

    October 1, 2012  |   By Smitty123345

    Pros

    versatile, simple interface

    Cons

    leangthy encryption, totally absent accidental resume feature. No support

    Summary

    27 hours to go into a complete external drive encryption, and the ext HD accidentally disconnected. The progam froze, so I shut it down...and NO resume!!!! Now the drive is innaccessable and corrupted. That's 500 GB of data gone. ...and there's NO offered support for "corrupted data" according to the site.

    For me, this is a critical review... i don't have "normal" problems - this is EXACTLY the kind of crap that happens to me... Ever heard of Achilles' heel?
