TrueCrypt is truly the best and ultimate freeware encryption program. Fully loaded with a ton of great features, TrueCrypt can be taken along with you on the go as it is completely portable. Keep your data secure with this freeware software.
Featuring 11 algorithms for locking your personal and private information, TrueCrypt will create a volume protected by a password of your choice. The program will suggest you create strong passwords to prevent brute-force or dictionary attacks. If you do happen to lose your password or have forgotten it, you may as well consider the data being protected as lost forever since TrueCrypt uses strong encryption algorithms.
Folders hidden by the app will become completely undetectable once you dismount them. To re-access these files and folders, just mount them again with your password.
This application has also been optimized for use on certain newer Intel CPUs, taking advantage of certain technologies a lot of modern processors are capable of: this means that TrueCrypt can get the job of encrypting files done pretty quickly.
The overall user interface of this software isn't exactly the most user-friendly, but it contains some very powerful features. It may take a while to find your way around using TrueCrypt, but it is totally worth it. Since the program lacks a lot of the help files you might expect, their web site is currently the best place to go for tutorials.
Once you do get your encrypted volume setup, browsing the files is just as easy as it would be if they were on your Windows volume. In fact, you can even create a small, hidden operating system behind TrueCrypt.
As noted above, TrueCrypt is not the easiest program to use. We highly recommend taking a browse over their web site before getting started.TrueCrypt features and highlights:
