With many thanks to Igor Pavlov and the 7-Zip project. 7-zip.org
You can download the latest bèta release of EncryptCompressMyDrive7 from GitHub. There is currently no stable release yet.
EncryptCompressmyDrive7 is still able to fail, in this case, your data could be lost. Know the risk before use.
Questions that could occur
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
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.
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.
