abylon CRYPTDRIVE Current Version: 24.10.4

Background encryption to protect sensitive data against unauthorized access with AES or Blowfish (Product group: Encryption software)

Non-encrypted files are easy prey for spies and other curious people. The only remedy is a sufficiently secure encryption with recognized encryption methods. The software abylon CRYPTDRIVE creates so-called container files, which are secured with the known encryption algorithms AES or Blowfish. Only if the corresponding key was used, the secured data show up in the file explorer. As key a password can be entered over the keyboard, as well as a chip card, USB stick or certificate can be used. When Cryptdrive is open, the contained files are displayed in the assigned drive and can be edited and opened there. Applications can also be installed here, whereby the encryption runs automatically in the background. When Cryptdrive is closed, the drive is hidden and the contained data is protected against further access.

Problems under Windows 10 after November update could be fixed!

Until version 15 it is now possible to access opened CRYPTDRIVE's under Win 10. The compensation via virtual machines is no longer necessary.

Real-time encryption Access protection for your data through automatic encryption

Application example for encryption

The computers are becoming more and more mobile. Nowadays, powerful electronic components fit into even the smallest housings. In professional life, too, a laptop, notebook or ultrabook is increasingly being used instead of the clumsy desktop PC. Since Microsoft Windows 8 has optimized its operating system for finger input, this operating system can even be found on tablets or convertibles. However, the mobility of these devices increases the risk of loss through forgetting or criminal energy. In this case, the encryption of your personal data is almost mandatory. The data is stored in a highly encrypted Cryptdrive and is protected against unauthorized access. The Cryptdrive is opened with the appropriate password and/or hardware key. There is no secret entrance or backdoor. In this way the secured data is protected against unwanted access in the worst case.

TIPP: When selling your computer, tablet or hard disk, your personal data or the entire drives should be cleaned by multiple overwriting with our software abylon SHREDDER.

I'm not a windows expert enough to install this complex SW. Just the installation disclaimers themselved scared me NOT to continue. Uninstalled.

Thank you for your interest in our software.
For cost reasons, we refrain from a costly certification of our driver. Therefore, the unfortunately somewhat complicated and for inexperienced users too technical installation process is necessary!

I've used DriveCript for years on my old Xp computer. Easy. No problems.
I can't figure out what the hell is going on with this new version. NO INSTRUCTIONS. I want to make a simple container file.... can't do it. You've gotten entirely too complicated for the simple things I want to do.
May be there is an easier way, but I could not find it. And no HELP files!

Hi Sebastian,
In principle, nothing great has changed in the program abylon CRYPTDRIVE and their operation. Unfortunately, the requirements have increased due to the operating system. I assume that you have not activated the test mode under Windows. This is a prerequisite for the use of self-signed certificates, which we use in our software.

I would like to know if a folder on a USB drive can be encrypted.

Avatar of abylonsoft support #554


abylon CRYPTDRIVE is a so-called container solution. A directory is not encrypted in the sense. However, you can create the encrypted container file on the USB stick and save the files of the directory in there. Only if this is open and thus decrypted, the corresponding files can be accessed.
If you want to encrypt single files, you should have a look at our software abylon BASIC. Other alternatives are abylon SHAREDDRIVE or abylon CRYPT in the BOX.

Which of the Company-X product does your product compare to Crypt or Crypt-Plus? I presently run both of their products and always interested in buying other non-US made Disk Encryption products.

Hi KenY, thank you for your interest in our software. However, for legal reasons it is not allowed to comment on foreign products. Sorry

Hi Bobo,
we regret the circumstance, but it is inexplicable to us. No one else has heard of a similar problem. Could you describe your approach and the problem as precisely as possible Screenshots can help in some cases. Thank you.

I have few question about this Application. This free License is it for how long? And why is there no indication if a purchased license is for lifetime or a certain number of years. I could not find this information anywhere in your website and even in the payment table. Kindly clarify.
