It's easy to encrypt your files with this program, but it simply fails to deliver on all of its promises. At first installation, Super File Encryption prompts to create a default program password. You can't easily change passwords per protected file, but you can easily change the default password in the Options window. The program's compact main interface holds only a small pane to view files and a few buttons to encrypt, decrypt, access options, and close the window.
Operating Super File Encryption takes only a few clicks and requires little skill. Hit the Encrypt button and a standard file browser opens. We found you could use the standard Ctrl or Shift options to select multiple files, but you couldn't select folders. Files are quickly encrypted and decryption is just as swift. Clicking a locked file helpfully displays a window requesting Super File Encryption's password. While encrypting and decrypting files through the main interface was easy enough, we didn't find the context menu options promised by the publisher.
The Help file lists AES, Hash, and Des encryption algorithms, but Options offers only a single check box to enable the 448-bit encryption method. The Help file fails to list the default encryption algorithm. The program is quickly mastered before completing the stingy 20-use trial restriction. Super File Encryption fails to deliver on all promises, and isn't feature-laden enough to satisfy experienced users. We suggest you continue the search for a thorough and secure method to protect your files and folders.
