If you’ve ever felt the need to encrypt your data in order to keep it safe, secure and private then SafeHouse Explorer Encryption could be just what you are looking for.
SafeHouse Explorer will work on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 and is a very small 4MB download.
As far as encryption programs go, this one is very easy to get to grips with.
When you install the program it will create an encrypted ‘vault’ in a location of your choosing which could be a hard drive or USB stick for example.
Each ‘vault’ that you create can be up to 2 terrabytes in size which is absolutely massive in comparison to other rival services.
Once you have created your vaults you can then protect them with 256-bit encryption and a password.
When you wish to view the contents of your encrypted volume you simply need to enter the password and browse away, either though the SafeHouse Explorer application itself or via Windows Explorer, much like you would view any drive attached to your computer.
Peter Avritch does a great job of explaining this in far more detail in the video below –
Overall I really like SafeHouse Explorer as it does the job, allows you to encrypt huge amounts of data, is free! and doesn’t go all technical on you.
