Our new Exlade Cryptic Disk 5.1 features lots of bugfixes and improvements.
Automatic unmounting upon user session lock
Though many users lock the current working sessions by pressing Win + L when they are away from their PCs, the encrypted data can still remain vulnerable if they forget to disable access to it. The new Cryptic Disk 5.1 supports automatic unmounting of encrypted containers and disks once the user locks the current session. This automatic unmounting works perfect even for locked RDP (remote) sessions. By default, the option is inactive, but you can always turn it on in the program settings.
Support of the Notification Center in Windows 8/10
Windows 8 is the first Windows-family operating system featuring the built-in Notification Center which is intended to replace the old-style program notifications in the system tray. In Windows 10, these old-style notifications are disabled by default. The new version of Cryptic Disk uses the Notification Center in Windows 8 and Windows 10 to notify users about mounting and unmounting of encrypted disks. However, the old-style notifications are still supported for backward compatibility with Windows XP and Windows Vista.
The appearance of Cryptic Disk notifications can be set in the program settings.
Support of the exFAT file system
The new version supports the exFAT (Extended FAT) file system in addition to FAT and NTFS when creating a new encrypted container or encrypting the existing physical drive. The exFAT file system is optimized for use with removable media and better suits the encrypted containers and disks thanks to significantly improved capabilities and raised limits in comparison with the legacy FAT system.
