2.   If you are starting Cypherix for the first time, it asks you to specify the properties of the Cypherix volume file to be created. This is described further in the Creating the Cypherix volume section.

       

3.   On subsequent starts, Cypherix asks you for the password to load the volume. Enter the password, and click OK.

4.   Once the Cypherix volume is loaded, you work with the ghost Cypherix drive as explained in the working with the Cypherix drive section.

 

5.   When you no longer need your encrypted files, you either Unload the drive or Shut Down Cypherix. This protects your encrypted information by removing the Cypherix drive containing your files. Now, no one can access them without the password.        

 

star_s TIP:

If you minimize or close your Cypherix window, it is hidden. Any loaded volume still remains loaded. But, you can always see this Cypherix window by double-clicking on its icon that appears on your icon bar.
