Is there any point in keeping Portable Utility & Security Suite (PUSS) V1.02 on the database when the project has ended and the product replaced by Toucan?

Just in case anybody is still reading these pages, I'd like to inform you of the following:
PUSS is dead; Long live Toucan - PUSS has become Toucan and is now an official Project
Support will no longer be offered here - Use the Forums instead
This site will remain up until the 22nd of May, 2008 when the domain expires. We will not be renewing the registration

We've all had a fun time here, but it's time to move on. Adios, Amigos.

I don't know about PUSS, but as for Toucan, it is very processor intensive, on encryption. It works Ok on an individual file level, but on a folder with 183mb of a good mixture of file extensions (.txt, .doc, .exe, .cab, .zip, .msi, .wmv, etc.), it sucked up 98% average processor time for about 5 minutes before it froze up. I was using it on a Dell XPS with a 2ghz Intel Centrino. It does a lot, but does it do it efficiently? I mean its only using rijendael, or blowfish to encrypt. Good algorithms, but known for speed. I wouldn't trust this on folder encryption but maybe individual file encryption it would be ok for. For now, I will probably stick to ozSync for Sync/ Backup/ Encrypted Backup, TrueCrypt for Folder level Encryption, and Challenger and Omziff for file level encryption. Nice idea to combine all in one app, but Toucan is not there yet.
