    I have the full version of this program that is already mentioned many times in this forum.

    Today i decided to try it out the for the first time.

    It seems to offer (according the manual) 256-Bit blowfish.

    So i decided to create a strong password with 64 carathers (HEX) to get the
    256-bit.

    I also tried a 32 carathers string with using the FULL ASCII set (256-bit) also.

    Now for the unsafety :

    It seems it only takes usage for the first 16 carathers in the password, nomather if you use 64 or even 100 carathers.

    If you enter just the first 16, access is granted ! so why type more than 16 carathers ? huh o_O

    It also seems it can't handle case sentitive passwords, upper or lower case is the same , can't use strange symbols, only + - / etc... and max. 16 carathers.

    How on earth can I utilise the full 256-bit strength with this ??

    I know that recomended Blowfish is 448- bits but they use 256-bit, but that should be enough for the home user. But you can't even make strong passwords ?

    It's a typo : character = letter / number / symbol etc...

    NO keyfile option for Folderlock > Only weak passwords.
