The simple file-safe with automatic background encryption.
The software abylon CRYPT in the BOX is easy to use and encrypted automatically your important files. You can copy the files with Windows-Explorer in special CRYPT-Folder or added and edited in the program surface.

Reviews for CRYPT in the BOX
Is a relatively simple encryption program… too simple, in fact. It lacks many features found in other encryption programs:
1./ Can only set one password, which is used to encrypt/decrypt all files… meaning sharing encrypted files with others is going to be a hassle (aka you can’t have different passwords depending on who you are sharing with)
2./ No entry in right-click context menu for easy access
3./ Can’t create standalone executable decrypting files
4./ Doesn’t compress encrypted files
5./ No plausible deniability
6./ When you add a file to be encrypted, CRYPT in the BOX creates a copy of the file — the original stays
unencrypted, despite the developer claiming that “automatic wiping of original files”
7./ Developer claims drag + drop is supported, but it doesn’t work as per my tests
8./ Is always on in the background unless you specifically close it (clicking X minimizes it to system tray, you need to right-click system tray icon and close it) and sets itself to automatically run at Windows boot (you can change a setting in the program to stop it from launching at boot). There really is no major reason for an encryption program to be always on and start at Windows boot — that just wastes computer resources.
9./ Program does not password protect itself. If you leave abylon CRYPT in the BOX running (i.e. you
don’t close it out from the system tray), anyone can come and open the program and access your files
without entering your password. The only time you are required to enter your password before you can
access files is if abylon CRYPT in the BOX was closed and you started it; once it is running, you don’t
have to enter your password again… which is a huge security risk, especially for shared computers.
10./ No offline help and online help is poor
After all the time-consuming fuss to install and register this giveaway — the German developer seems downright paranoid about its software’s activation — all the effort turns out not to be worth it.
There’s no Help file immediately to hand nor any guidance about what to do after installation and registration.
After the program had launched, I filled in the appropriate fields with the info copied and pasted from Abylonsoft’s email, and was then presented with a password screen which seemed to require me to create a master password for ongoing usage of the product.
“Seemed to” is an accurate description because nothing is clearly spelled out, including the meaning of the ridiculous childish icons with which the developer mysteriously chooses to bedeck the password input box.
Anyway. I entered what I thought would be the master password I could use both now and in the future but all that happened was, a strange message appeared: ‘This password is different from the earlier password!” And that was that. The program refused to go any further.
There was, of course, no earlier password.
This was newly downloaded, newly installed software that couldn’t possibly have been used before. Result: a complete waste of time, a product that’s unusable from the get-go (judging from comments elsewhere on the ‘Net about this developer’s inability to offer products that actually work out of the box, it’s obvious this is not the first time that Abylonsoft has goofed. A pity it hasn’t learnt any better by now.)
I’m off to uninstall immediately. Advice: do yourself a favor and AVOID this giveaway.
