Simple installation, user guidance, and operation make this freeware virtual encrypted disk tool a snap for anyone to use. Cryptdisk.4h's dialog-size interface doesn't complicate the process. Five buttons and a small list make up an interface even novice users will quickly master.

Some users like the simplicity of an encrypted folder on their hard drive. This tool makes it easy to install such a folder and mount it as a virtual drive. There are dozens of such programs, but Cryptdisk.4h makes sure to give new users a very detailed step-by-step guide to set up the drives. Experienced users will have this app set up and running in minutes.

It's easy to set and use a password to block others from accessing your encrypted drive. With a few check boxes and a pull-down menu, users can set the drive's letter and mount it as read-only or removable. Multiple drives can be easily managed from a simple list menu. After mounting a drive, files can be dropped in and removed using Windows Explorer or drag and drop.

Users needing basic file encryption in an easy-to-use virtual drive setting will find Cryptdisk.4h answers their need at no cost.

Developer's Description

CryptDisk.4h (32 bit) uses a file as virtual logic drive and mounts it as a real one, everything you write to the created virtual disk will be encrypted transparently; virtual disk in effect is a drive volume that is loaded once you have input the correct password. It creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk. Decryption is automatic, as data is read from the hard disk or USB token, CryptDisk.4h automatically decrypts the data before it is loaded. When data is written back to the hard disk, it is automatically re-encrypted. CryptDisk.4h uses two of the most proven encryption algorithms: AES-256, Twofish-256.
