The market died in the months following Truecrypt. Review, does not discuss its use, since the use of via Truecrypt.


February 2021 Update:

(1), provides encryption of the contents of the virtual disk. Assuming you create a file container using the application wizard to create a container, and then use the application’s main page to mount it as a drive, you can copy or move files to that drive. Once you copy or move your files to this disk, they will be encrypted.

for Flash drives. You can encrypt entire USB keys or create a container on USB keys. In the latter case, when you create a container, each time you connect the flash drive to your computer, you must mount it as a separate volume.

On your website, only the part of the file you are working on is decrypted and stored in memory. If you move to another part of the file, that part is decrypted and then encrypted again after writing changes to the hard disk./span>/span>/span>

say that although built on the Truecrypt code, it deleted the Truecrypt negatives to make it a very powerful encryption tool. Here is an extract from their home page:

For example, if the system partition is encrypted, TrueCrypt uses PBKDF2-RIPE®160 with 1000 iterations, while we use 327661 in VeraCrypt. And for standard containers and other TrueCrypt partitions uses a maximum of 2000 iterations, but VeraCrypt uses 655331 for RIPE®160 and 500000 iterations for SHA-2 and Whirlpool.

Encryption tool in its interface. Especially when creating a container, I was confused if I wanted to create a container with the format or format my hard disk. I had to read the documentation online before I could continue. The documentation is good with many screenshots and things are explained in an easy to understand method.


is good and much higher than Truecrypt’s one. TrueCrypt volumes can also be mounted./span>/span>

for two reasons: 1) Security is better and 2) the set is freely usable and can be verified as an open source. Although I am not in coding, I can say that it is safe, as there have been no complaints visible by other coders at the time of writing this article.
