    Hi

    today i read lots of good review about Secure Folder 5.4
    -http://sites.google.com/site/securefolders/

    does someone use it ?

    because there is hide and lock folders..

    but my question , is enough a linux distro to bypass the hide and lock feature?

    thanks

    Never used it. Looks like decent software though. I dont think anything can beat truecrypt though. http://www.truecrypt.org/

    What I seem to "get" from this is that they simply encrypt individual files. The use of the term "folders" is misleading. All it seems to do (and correct me if I'm wrong) is encrypt individual files inside a folder and then use Windows own system to "hide" the folders.

    Truecrypt, and it's simple virtual drive technology, is far superior and much easier to use.

    Heads UP

    AFAIK most if not all Apps that just hide files/folders are fine for things that aren't REALLY private/confidential etc. Most people won't be able to find them, & if they are PW protected, so much the better.

    But anyone who knows what they are doing Can find them, & also view the contents etc :eek:

    Good encryption is the answer :thumb:

    Use AxCrypt instead. It's free, open source, encryption and does the same type of thing but more securely.
