Encrypted files are one click away with Rohos Disk v.1.7

So what do you use to password protect your USB drive and have secure access to your encrypted partition on Public PCs without having administrative rights?

Long time anticipated by fans of portable encryption solutions possibility to create an encrypted area on a USB disk/key that a user can open/mount, double click and open the files, and close as required, without Admin rights is now implemented in Rohos Data Security solutions Rohos Disk Encryption and Rohos Mini Drive. You do not need Administrative privileges, and yet you can double click and open say a Word doc, and then save it to the same place without leaving any traces of working with it.

You may say – “There are solutions that have a portable disk Explorer utility that allows working with an encrypted disk without Admin rights”. Yes, but very few disk encryption solutions provide decent disk Explorer performance. Meaning that in many of them you can only extract a file outside the disk Explorer and then open it.  After some changes to the file have been done, if any, you should Import file back to the Disk Explorer. In this case “on-the-fly” encryption principle doesn’t work.  The obvious disadvantages of such approach – ‘unencrypted files’ may be left behind on a guest PC or unsecured part of the USB flash drive, and you can’t work with big files.

Try Rohos Disk Encryption (shareware) or Rohos Mini Drive (freeware) and discover:

  • File Virtualization. Open files via Rohos Disk Browser in associated application without first decrypting them into temporary folder. Rohos virtualizes file presence for the application, thus it works with encrypted file by using “on-the-fly” encryption principle.
