With the help of Jetico's powerful BestCrypt utility, you'll be able to create a secure virtual disk on your PC. It protects confidential directories and data by thoroughly encrypting them. You can even safely allow other people to use your PC without giving them access to any of your personal documents.

When using BestCrypt, the first thing to do is establish a virtual disk. You'll need to enter the physical and virtual drive letters to use, as well as a name and description. The utility also asks how much space to reserve for the virtual disk.

BestCrypt offers multiple encryption algorithms to choose from. They include IDEA, TWOFISH, Triple DES and GOST. Depending on your preference, it can chain cipher-blocks or use narrow-block data encryption. You may also select one of three key generators to use for each virtual disk: GOST, SHA-256 or KG-Ghost.

The next step involves choosing files to encrypt. BestCrypt employs the same Explorer file browser that many programs use. This makes the directory and file selection process rather easy and quick. You may also merge two or more virtual drives. The utility's toolbar and plug-ins can be modified to suit your preferences as well.

After establishing a virtual disk and encrypting files, you may cloak or reveal the protected storage zone at any time. You can also set the program to disable access after a specified period of inactivity. If you need to block access to the virtual disk with little notice, you may configure a special key combination for this purpose.

BestCrypt runs quickly and performs reliably. It doesn't occupy a great deal of memory, fill up the hard disk or overburden your CPU. This trialware Windows utility proves relatively easy to use, especially with the help of the included documentation. Basically, it offers an effective and convenient way to secure sensitive data.
