Hi,

I was looking for a software that would easily Encrypt my 500 GB HDD without much of technical knowledge.

I looked at "TruCrypt" "Cryptic Disk" "Hide & Protect Any Drive" ...etc.

But they all required mounting & Unmounting & other stuff.

Then I came across a software called "StorageCrypt" which Encrypts a 500 GB HDD in less than 5 Seconds. I didn't believe it so I downloaded trial version & tried it & it did something in less than 5 seconds. But I couldn't tell if it really encrypted the HDD or just did something else that would open with a Password. Here is the Link to download free trial.

Other software took a long time to encrypt & involved many steps.

Can anyone tell me how to verify if your HDD is Really Encrypted or not & whether this software is for Real ?

Thank You.

As stated on their web site it encrypts the Partition Table and File System (MFT/FAT); doesn't say anything about encrypting the data (the bit that takes time).

JustSomeJoe,

If it encrypts only Partition Table & File system, can someone steal data from it ?

I want to send a HDD with sensitive data overseas by post & if it gets lost or ends up in wrong hands, can someone break & steal data from it ?

In other words how vulnerable am I ?

Thanks

If you want privacy your not going to get around truecrypt and a 22 or so length password. Pick a book, and a passage you like.

Very vulnerable; anyone with a copy of Clonezilla could recover all of your files from the drive.
