VaultPad v1.2 Updated

Checker on 28 Nov 2014

VaultPad is a simple text/file encryptor that uses a AES cipher (symmetric-key pairs) to encrypt local messages and RSA/AES cipher (public/private key pairs) for shared messages. Messages are formatted as XML and allow embedding of small files.

A SHA-512 cipher is used to hash passwords, so they aren't stored in the application itself. A MD5 algorithm is used to check embedded files for corruption. VaultPad will handle third party public keys to be able to encrypt/decrypt their files directly.

USBFlashCopy v1.10 Updated

Checker on 28 Nov 2014

USBFlashCopy backs up/synchronizes from external storage on the fly. The program runs in the background and copies all or select files from inserted media to a destination of your choice. Includes available copy throttle speed, minimum free space check to avoid filling up your drive, file filters, and can even be set to only copy from selected drives (by serial number).

New drives plugged in are prompted for a new copy profile and transfers include a progress bar. Ideal for people who do much of their work on remote computers and need to automate the process of backing up their files.

Functional in 64-bit. Note that fully transparent operations (no user notification; runs entirely in background) are only available in the registered version.

ShareX 9.3.0 released.

Sope on 2014-09-30 14:19

I've just downloaded and set up ShareX following the guidelines given here but would like to add the following in case it may be of use to others.

By default, ShareX automatically creates a personal folder named "ShareX" within the users "My Documents" folder to store tools such as the separately downloaded FFmpeg libraries and application settings json files. If you want to change the location of this folder in order to make the program fully portable, it's necessary to manually create a folder named "ShareX" in the same folder as the ShareX.exe file.

Drag'n'Crypt ULTRA v2.3.8 Updated

Checker on 28 Nov 2014
  • 652KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Fluffy

Drag'n'Crypt ULTRA is a small file encryption tool that uses a handy "drop box" interface to make encryption and decryption fast and easy. Uses the Twofish encryption algorithm

Note:

  • File size is limited. Maximum file size depends on 1/2 free memory (for example: with a RAM of 512 MB RAM you can encrypt a 256 MB file). The author recommends TrueCrypt for larger files.
  • The website is in German, but the program is in English.
  • Starting from version 2.2.0, Drag'n'Crypt ULTRA is no longer backwards-compatible with data encrypted using Blowfish or TEA.

@New_Order: Anyone who can write encryption software has my respect. Anyone who offers their software for use by others at no cost has my thanks - Vielen dank!

The testing I was doing on DCU was to investigate Ganamyde's problem of complete computer lock-down when encrypting large files. Even though I tried encrypting files that were probably 100x bigger than DCU was intended to work with, I did not get lock-down. This is good because it shows that DCU can encrypt large files.

About half way through encrypting a 1GB file, I noticed that DCU was trying to trying to connect to the internet, and I blocked it. I was not expecting DCU to connect to the internet at all, and it seemed strange that it tried to do this while it was still encrypting a file. Unfortunately for you I am very sensitive to software that does the unexpected, and 2x as sensitive when the software is processing data that the user believes should be kept secure. That is why I marked DCU down.

I am now wondering if the internet connection could be the cause of Ganamyde's problem. I am guessing that you start a new thread to check for a new version of DCU. If the internet connection has to wait for data, that could cause the thread to lock up. This is not much of a problem with multiple processor cores, but if Ganamyde's computer was old enough to only have a single core it could cause his lock-down. Of course this is complete guesswork from me and is very likely wrong.
