Free myVault! [Less than 9 hours left]

Software Description

The following is a description of myVault, as per the developer:

Got sensitive documents or images that need protecting? Do you also need to make sure that the aforementioned documents and images stay organized to your specific needs?

myVault does exactly that! In a nutshell, it’s the digital equivalent of a filing cabinet and safe combined into a single, intuitive utility. Think of it as a TODO program in reverse — a place to keep details of the past, not the future. A place to securely archive anything and everything!

myVault makes it simple to store information and documents — encrypted or not — and to easily find, view, and edit them. It’s ideal for storing photos, images, passwords, serial numbers, eBooks, receipts.

dotTech Advice

myVault is a, more or less, a notes manager that allows you to organize and store your notes, documents, and images. It has the added bonus of being able to encrypt the data you store in myVault.

Giving myVault a quick look, I found myVault to be very poor. How to operate myVault isn’t very obvious. For example, I have not been able to figure out how to insert images or documents into myVault even after reading the Read Me — and I pride myself on being a software talker. The features offered by myVault aren’t anything ground breaking, such as lack of a fully featured WYSISYG editor (you can only change font type, size, bold italics, underline, and change color). The encryption is Blowfish 358 which can only be used for items you have in myVault. Overall, it is hard for me to recommend myVault: It is not a very user-friendly files organizer and encryption software, in my opinion.

If you are looking for a secure program to store your passwords, credit card numbers, etc. take a look at KeePass. If you are looking for a program to encrypt files look at TrueCrypt or AxCrypt. My Lockbox is another option for hiding files. Cinta Notes is a simple notes manager you can check out, if you need a notes manager.

    @Dan: Thanks for the heads up!

    @ernst albus: When I posted the article the freebie was still live with about 8.5 hours left. You read the article after the freebie expired. There is no conspiracy theory here. I post about freebies when I hear about them.

    @Eric 506: You are welcome!

    Ashraf:

    If you figure out how to get a file into the vault, let me know! I could copy it to the vault folder, but finding it in the myVault software and encrypting it was a different story. The “help” was the worst I’ve seen.

    TrueCrypt here I come.

    Thanks for everything you do!!

    Nice page but you are also late like some other page giving information about temporarly freebies.

    Like this Vault-Software – you are indicating “less than 9 hours left” is at least 8 hours I wouldsay! But looking at the pagelink it’s told “deal is over….”

    I really wonder what kind of partnership you all keep up that no one could tell the real time???

    Shouldn’t be a technical problem, but what is the reason for such delay???

    Doesn’t sound good at all…

    Sincerely,

    E. A.

    Another one to add to the mix is WinMend Folder Hidden ( http://http://www.winmend.com/folder-hidden/ ), which may not be the most solid of programs of it’s kind, but ti certainly does what it promises to do..and extremely fast to boot!

    I have been using it now for some time and find it very good for a free program.

    One little thing I don’t like about it is the way it tries to update each time you run the program..and there doesn’t seem to be any way to disable this.
