Portable Privacy Drive 2.8.0 Build 731
Create encrypted virtual drives and store your files
Portable Privacy Drive is a software solution designed to protect your data using state-of-the-art encryption algorithms and a secure environment that can be easily accessed and modified whenever you desire. In order to do this, the utility enables you to create a virtual drive, which acts like a regular partition on your hard disk and can be used for the same purposes.
The difference is that every document you store on this drive is automatically encrypted, as is the entire partition, which offers you double the amount of protection. In the creation process, you can choose the size and the name of this drive and you can mount it in order to be visible as another disk on your system. Furthermore, you can also choose a password to protect it.
Choose from a variety of encryption and hash algorithms
The available encryption algorithms include AES and Twofish, both the 128 and the 256 bits versions, which offer you solid protection against any attacks. In addition, you can also choose the desired hash algorithm to apply, such as SHA-512, MD5 or SHA-256. All of these, coupled with the mandatory password, assure the security of your files even on shared computers.
To customize the created disk, Portable Privacy Drive allows you choose the preferred drive letter, as long as it does not interfere with the other available partitions already mounted on your system. Moreover, it can be created either as a regular disk, or as a removable device, depending on the way you intend on using it.
Thanks to the wide array of customization options and the solid encryption methods, Portable Privacy Drive is capable of protecting your documents in almost any situation. In addition, the created drive can be hidden at any point by choosing to dismount it from the system and rendering it practically invisible. Since this is the portable version of the application, it does not require any installment and it does not bring any changes to your registry.
