Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This disk-encryption utility stands as a convenient and excellent way to lock down your data from prying eyes. Since Windows sees TurboCrypt Disk Encryption as just another drive, you can add files to your encryption archive from any application via a simple right click, a nice time-saving feature. In case of danger, you can lock all your encrypted drives with two clicks, although we wish you could hide it via a hot key. The program offers you several ways to wipe any file beyond recovery and also gives you a tool for cleaning your PC's free drive space. In our tests, TurboCrypt Disk Encryption swiftly did its job and didn't hinder normal computer tasks or PC performance in the least. However, we should note that the trial version will only let you encrypt 256MB of data, which is somewhat restrictive but still pretty fair. Since this program is easy to use and very secure, we think it will appeal to a wide range of users.
