I'm not a fan of encrypted single files and then compressed and stored in an encrypted folder or vault.
The problem is, if you ever want to recover after a crashed HD, there is no way to individually recover the single files do to the fact that the end of file marker is intermingled with the folder sectors markers. I have not found yet a recovery software that had succeeded to recover such encrypted individual files or folders or vaults that were truncated, encrypted and compressed, to be seen as valid files.
Please test an encrypted vault that has compressed and encrypted files in it and then see if any of them are possible to recover after deletion or HD failure.

Hi Joey, you are totally right. I can tell you from longterm experience that this is a general problem when using encryption, indeed. It is always a question of what you try to accomplish.
For instance: Let's say you do not use a whole disk encryption software. And you do a backup on an external drive that you keep at home at a safe place that you also do not encrypt. That's fair to me. In case of desasters (like fire or lightning), you might choose a cloud backup. I highly recommend to encrypt this before uploading. That to me would be a meaningful usecase.

By the way: A file-by-file encryption (like CMirror and others) can decrypt all single files that have not been destroyed. The keyfile has to be okay, though. So, of course you can much more easily recover plain files, but for that case a file-by-file encryption is better than a single container file.
To clarify: The storage location of CMirror is called "container" but it is not a single file.

Could the developer please explain why when java 1.8.0_161 is fully supported on Vista and functional if not fully supported on Windows XP that this java application claims it is for Windows 7 or above only... when there are no Windows 7 specific requirements in Java and in fact a large part of the reason to use java is to produce OS and platform agnostic applications! It seems to run without complaint under Vista SP2 32bit...

Hi TK, running is one thing, supporting another. We do not support XP or Vista anymore for obvious reasons.

Frank Hissen, odd response considering that on your freeware version of this products page you write:

https://www.frankhissen.de/crococryptmirror-official-download-encryption-freeware-hissenit.html

"Downloads for Windows (Freeware)

All Windows versions since XP and above are being supported."

Would those obvious reasons be marketing by any chance?

TK, no, the version you are referring to has support for XP but the new version (1.5) has not anymore. Again, it's obvious...XP gets no security support from MS anymore and its market share is finally low.

Err this is a Java application.. can it use the systems Java runtimes that are kept updated rather than the embeded 1.8.0_161 which currently is ok but in the future will be superceded by security updates and bug fix updates. Also how do you protect your application from hacking? Java is notoriosly easy to decompile edit and recompile by end users. As well as significantly slower than native or even .NET applications.

Hi TK,

surely the system's Java could be used but most end users have trouble with installation and configuration. Hence we bundle everything so no one is bothered. Also, it is NOT a system JVM, just embedded. We provide updates, though.

By the way, nobody is forcing you to use the software. Everybody has its taste. That's ok.

I am using CryptSync (Freeware) for that. It is encrypting and compressing using 7zip. So all files will by one by one in the corresponding folders with a .7z extension. It has no go back routine, one must use 7zip to decrypt the files in case of a case :).

Not sure, if this tool is better. Will give it a try.

Hi,
Thnx for the SW. Yet, I wonder, once the lic. is expired can I still restore / retrieve the encrypted folders / files from the cloud?

Hi Uri!
Yes you can. We've designed our software so that you are 100% in control of your data! No expiration.

Kind regards,

Is it possible to sync file folder which not from the customary Google Drive Folder ?

Reply   |   Comment by rzl  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Hi,

I do not fully understand the question, but you can mirror from and to any local accessible folder on your computer.
Does this answer your question?

Kind regards,
