Quickly create encrypted partitions on your computer, mount and dismount them, with the help of this reliable, user-friendly application.
VeraCrypt is a comprehensive tool, that allows you to create encrypted volumes and easily mount them on your system. The application features several wizard functions, which can guide you through every step of the process. Moreover, it offers several encryption methods, allowing you to select the most suitable one.
VeraCrypt is a reliable tool when it comes to the security of your data and storing information in an encrypted location. The application can create several additional partitions on your computer, that you can mount or dismount at any time. This way, you may restrict the access of unauthorized users to your information.
The program allows you to generate new encrypted file containers or encrypt already existing entities, such as a non-system partition or the entire system drive. Detailed information is available along the process, so you may select the proper options for your requirements.
VeraCrypt allows you to use alternative encryption modes, as well as combine protection algorithms in order to obtain a high security level for the containers. The actual partition is saved as a file at the indicated location and is encrypted, using the selected algorithm.
The program supports AES, Serpent, Twofish and several combinations of the three. You may perform a benchmark test in order to verify each algorithm before applying to the actual files. Further, you need to allocate the desired space for storage, based on the available free space on your system. You must also set a password to unlock the drive mounting process.
VeraCrypt features several tools that allow you to test the encryption method you selected for the drive you wish to protect. Test Vectors, Keyfile Generator or the Security Token settings are a few examples. The program also enables you to mount or dismount any of the encrypted drives you previously created: all the instances are displayed in its interface.

Encrypt your drives to make each of them request a password upon boot-up, by way of intricate 256-bit algorithms such as AES, RC6, and many others.
In an age where we're increasingly more reliant on our computers, protecting the data we store on them makes sense. Being proactive — and even a bit paranoid — about securing the contents we store on our drive is a good thing in the prevailing situation.
Though it is getting harder to protect the data that is collected of us while surfing the web, methods can be implemented to lessen that blow. But what do we do with the data on our drives? Our files — documents, photos, you name it — what happens if someone happens to somehow access our computer? BestCrypt Volume Encryption can be a solution against that: encrypt an entire drive to make it require a password upon boot-up, and more.
This is quite an interesting app. Though its interface may not be one most intricately designed, it's a functional, to-the-point layout that's presented to you. The option to choose between an advanced or simplified form is given to you before installing, but you can switch between them anytime.
Encrypting a drive is an easy affair: by clicking the "Volume" menu at the top, you can choose whether to secure one or more. After that, you'll be prompted to introduce the password that will be used to access the encrypted volume. During that setup, the program affords you to pick the algorithm: the 256-bit AES, RC6, SERPENT solutions are just some examples. You will also have to press some buttons and move around your mouse a bit, inputs which the app will register as randomized keys to build the algorithm.
A great feature of BestCrypt is that the encrypted storage remains encrypted on each system bootup. In essence, each time you turn on your machine and log in, the secured drives will appear empty, and clicking on them will return a "Format Drive" option, signaling that they cannot be accessed. You will need to enter the password in the app to unlock them.
You can also lock your system by requiring a password before your OS even starts booting up, which helps tremendously with the layer of protection it adds.
To conclude, it's worth noting that, with all of the intricate encryption that such an app can offer, it's surprisingly easy to use and user-friendly. It's thus a great feature that, by using BestCrypt, even the casual users can wall off their drives from attackers.
