Do you store sensitive information like bank account numbers, addresses, credit card information, passwords and similar data on your PC? No doubt you do. This type of information one may need to keep handy, but may not want it available to whomever they may share their PC with or to possible hackers. So how to keep it safe, yet easily accessible?

Cryptainer PE is encryption software which I had never even heard of until a friend brought it to my attention. It will encrypt any type of data on a Windows (95/98/Me/2000/XP/2003 Server) PC on any type of media including hard drives, CD ROM's, removable drives, flash disks and even the memory card on your camera. Additionally, Cryptainer PE allows you to send encrypted email files. It can even be used as a type of backup for your most important files which is a good habit to get into!

It creates a type of generic ‘ghost’ file or ‘volume’ (not a hidden file or folder) that is heavily encrypted and can be loaded and unloaded with a password or pass phrase. Cryptainer runs a 448 bit implementation of the Blowfish algorithm in Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) mode with a block size of 64 bits. It also offers an option of AES at 256 bits. I have no idea what that means, but it sounds good!

Let’s see Cryptainer PE in action and I’m sure you will get a better appreciation of what it can do.
