Real time dropbox encryption with BoxCryptor


Best solution for people who work with DropBox and encrypted files, the data can be easily encrypted in real time with a free small encryption software named ‘BoxCryptor’ that allows you to encrypt and decrypt data’s and all can be done instantly and transparently.

BoxCryptor is a cryptographic virtual harddisk that encrypts all data on-the-fly in real-time. Encrypted data is stored transparently in an arbitrary directory. When you save files to the virtual hard disk and BoxCryptor encrypts them on-the-fly and stores the encrypted files in a directory or your choice, e.g. a directory that is synced to the cloud like your DropBox folder.

Similarly, When reading files from the virtual hard disk, BoxCryptor decrypts them on-the-fly so that they are accessible as any other unencrypted file. BoxCryptor takes care that all data is automatically encrypted and decrypted just before it is loaded or saved.

BoxCryptor needs .Net framework 2.0 or higher to work. Also this version is in beta and can be used only for testing purposes. Don’t use it for productive use. Developers behind this utility are working and hope to see them release a stable version soon.
