With a full set of encryption features and algorithms, FineCrypt gives us almost everything we want from an encryption utility. It lets you choose from 10 encryption algorithms and automatically compresses files when it encrypts, not only securing your documents but saving space as well. It includes an option to securely erase the originals of documents it encrypts and gives you great flexibility in setting paths where files and keys are kept. It offers basic password protection for files and stronger key encryption with a single secret key. Beyond that, it also generates key pairs for sending encrypted documents over the Internet and boasts a scheduling utility. FineCrypt's Communicator utility puts your public key in an e-mail so it can easily be shared with others, but there is no plug-in integration with Outlook or other e-mail clients. We like the Windows integration, which lets you encrypt files from the right-click menu in Windows Explorer. This utility is a good choice for people who need or want to keep most of their working and archived documents encrypted.
