    • Provides the same functionality as an encrypted virtual disk, but allows you to quickly sync it to the cloud. Guest • Jul 2020 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Doesn't provide the same functionality i.e. a locally encrypted disk volume. Guest • Mar 2020 • 3 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • VeraCrypt is for encrypting local files, cryptomator is for encrypting remote files as they are uploaded to cloud providers Guest • Dec 2018 • 9 agrees and 15 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Does not do encryption of local files, partitions, or drives Guest • Jul 2018 • 4 agrees and 23 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Now, it does support saving the encrypted files into local storage. But it does need an internet connection. So even the local storage can't be decrypted without an internet connection, I do not understand why, In my opinion local storage en-/decryption shouldn't depend on internet connection. teewetAug 2017 • 7 agrees and 19 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Only encrypts files that are to be uploaded to dropbox or google drive, no local volume support Guest • Feb 2017 • 3 agrees and 34 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • LUKS

    LUKS is the standard for Linux hard disk encryption. By providing a standard on-disk-format, it does not only facilitate compatibility among distributions, but also provides secure management of multiple user passwords. In contrast to existing solution, LUKS stores all setup necessary setup information in the partition header, enabling the user to transport or migrate his data seamlessly. LUKS was designed according to TKS1, a template design developed in TKS1 for secure key setup.

  • CryFS

    CryFS encrypts your files, so you can safely store them anywhere. It works well together with cloud services like Dropbox, iCloud, OneDrive and others. The goal of CryFS is not only to keep file contents, but also file sizes, metadata and directory structure confidential.

  • File Lock PEA

    Password-encryption of files and folders. The program is written in Java and therefore platform-independent and runs on nearly every system without installation, but requires a Java Runtime Environment - that is already installed in most cases. File PEA encrypts files and folders with authenticated encryption to protect confidentiality and integrity of the data and uses memory-hard key derivation functions to prevent custom hardware attacks.

  • EncFS

    EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel module to provide the filesystem interface. You can find links to source and binary releases below. EncFS is open source software, licensed under the GPL. As with most encrypted filesystems, Encfs is meant to provide security against off-line attacks; ie your notebook or backups fall into the wrong hands, etc.

  • FinalCrypt

    FinalCrypt uses the most unbreakable encryption: "One Time Pad" Encryption and has a well designed graphical user interface and an equally advanced command line interface for large automations. Reasons for choosing FinalCrypt: 1. Most people choose Disk-Encryption as it's easier to unlock a whole drive, but Big-Brother or Malware can then also read all your files. Only use File-Encryption! 2. Most software uses recently broken AES encryption: https://www.theinquirer .
