    That's madness. This was a perfectly good add-on and would have been extremely useful for many people. How is MS Private Folders any different from PGP, GPG, Cryptainer, CryptoExpert, TrueCrypt...?

    I think the alarmists sometimes need to keep a sense of perspective. Well, maybe then they wouldn't be alarmists. Still, MS need to keep a sense of perspective. Once again they are being openly tied to the corporate camp with no concern for the private user whatsoever. And once again they alienate people who may have been grateful. The tide takes another turn away from MS, magnifying the recent turn caused by their thoughtlessness concerning the WGA Notification debacle. They will never learn.
