Questions that could occur

What does EncryptCompressMyDrive7 do?

basically does what it says it does: Drive compression and encryption.

But in detail, the system creates a .ecmd7-file with a file name based on the username of the user. Because .ecmd7-files are basically 7-zip files with a special file name extension, they can not only compress the user files but also encode them, the data about the drive itself and other information needed is saved into .ecd7db-files which are just plaintext files with an alternate file name extension and with the purpose of databases.

Is EncryptCompressMyDrive7 save?

It is save, but probably not uncrackable. Of course nothing is ‘fully’ save, but I will warn you if there is anything wrong. The encryption in is based on 7z encryption, which has shown great results for the past years. Of course you are advised to pick a strong password, this will make it lots harder to crack your data.

If you follow this group, the Reddit community or join the Telegram channel, I can warn you on security updates, etc.
