Very good

Sometimes the best place to hide sensitive files is your own hard drive. Not just any hard drive, of course, but an encrypted virtual drive created with SecretDrive.

SecretDrive enables you to create and mount up-to eight virtual drives where you can safely store your information and keep it from prying eyes. You can customize the virtual drive's size and file system (FAT, FAT32 or NTFS). The drive is protected by an encryption algorithm, which you can select between 256-bit AES-Rijndael, 256- or 448-bit Blowfish, Twofish and 256-bit CAST.

As soon as it's created and mounted, the virtual drive will show up as yet another regular hard disk on Windows Explorer, and can be formatted and defragmented just as you would do with any other disk.

SecretDrive includes some extra tools, such as a password generator, a secure file-wiping tool and an encryption tool that can encrypt text strings and standalone files. However all of these tools are quite simple and don't feature any impressive options.

SecretDrive enables you to hide sensitive files right on your own computer, using a customizable virtual encrypted drive.
