BestCrypt is a security program that you can use to provide a safe environment for your sensitive files and folders, by creating a virtual drive. This type of tool helps you the moment you share your computer with multiple users, since it prevents them from accessing your private information.
The interface of the application is represented by a familiar window. Thanks to the Explorer-based layout, you can seamlessly locate the files and folders that you want to protect.
Creating a new container is done by specifying a name, location, allocated size, description, algorithm (e.g. Triple DES, IDEA, GOST, TWOFISH) and mode (cipher-block chaining or tweakable narrow-block), key generator (KG-Ghost, GOST or SHA-256), together with the drive letter to mount.
It is possible to build a group formed from multiple containers, locate all containers on a specific drive, hide or explore drives, customize the toolbar, to manage plugins and to perform an algorithm benchmark test.
Furthermore, you can set up a hotkey that will immediately dismount all virtual drives when triggered, enable timeout and minimize BestCrypt to the system tray area, mount all drives as removable, as well as disable the thumbnail image cache.
BestCrypt requires a pretty low amount of system resources, has a good response time and quickly mounts virtual drives, without causing the operating system to hang, crash or display error notifications. There's also a help file available for users with less or no experience in such apps. All in all, BestCrypt delivers a very good solution when it comes to file and folder protection.
