WinXAR is a powerful security
utility which allows you to encrypt, decrypt, shred files or keep
files in the encrypted virtual disks. You will never worry about
your sensitive or private files any more, especially when they are
emailed or on a removable media like USB stick.
The main WinXAR window features a list with the names, sizes, types,
and modified time stamps of files in the directory or in the
encrypted file. This list can be scrolled and sorted on any field. A
speed button bar provides fast access to commonly used actions.
Extensive context sensitive help is always available.
Double clicking on a file in the main WinXAR window has the same
effect as double clicking in Windows Explorer. The file is extracted
if it is an encrypted file, or the file is opened by the appropriate
application (for example, Notepad for *.TXT files) based on standard
The WinXAR encrypted virtual disk has no difference from any other
physical hard disk drive but it supports transparent on-the-fly
encryption to keep data strongly secured. You specify the password
when the virtual disk is mounted and thereafter everything you
access from disk is automatically decrypted and anything you place
disk is encrypted. WinXAR disk encryption maintains the security of
data even in case of incorrect system shutdown or system crash by
keeping the files always encrypted.
WinXAR provides a total file encryption solution. It will protect
your sensitive information on your PC, USB stick, removable disk,
laptop, email etc from hackers, thieves, competitors, secret
services or from any other possible intruder.
