What's new in WinXAR 2.0:
- Add encrypted virtual disk and fix some bugs
WinXAR is a powerful security tool, designed to password-protect your personal information. It can encrypt, decrypt and shred files, in a very easy manner.
The GUI is user-friendly, similar to the one of Windows Explorer. As a matter of fact, you can browse for files and folders just as you do in Explorer, while double-clicking a file initiates it.
All you have to do is select a file or folder, then encrypt it. The encryption parameters contain a password (that can be also set as default passkey for anything else).
Optionally, you can rename or test the encrypted file and once encryption is complete, you can choose to keep, delete, or shred and delete the original file. This way, you have complete control over traces of data you leave behind.
Furthermore, if you don't want wandering eyes to watch you type and try to decode the password, you can press a button to bring up a virtual keyboard.
When you decrypt a file, you have the option of preserving the encrypted file once the job is done. Also, we have noticed that when you exit WinXAR and then initiate it again, the application remembers your last location.
Moreover, WinXAR features a Virtual Disk Driver. It allows you to mount an encrypted virtual disk image file / partition / disk to make it usable. But we were not able to make it work, unfortunately.
Aside from this, uur tests ran perfectly (encryption, decryption, and testing encrypted files), and the application was up to the challenge, not to mention that it works really fast.
Overall, WinXAR is definitely a strong competitor when it comes to encryption tools. The features it comes with are more than sufficient and will help all users get the job done on the fly.
