How to encrypt your cloud storage for free

Brad Chacos | Sept. 26, 2012
If you want something done right, you need to do it yourself. That may sound like a trite cliche, but the maxim rings true when it comes to securing files that you've stored online: A handful of recent incidents--including breaches of Dropbox and iCloud--underscores the fact that even with built-in encryption and SSL transfers, cloud storage providers can't perfectly ensure the sanctity of your data.

Deselecting and reactivating virtual drives in order to jump between multiple encrypted folders gets the job done, but running through the reactivation process over and over again gets very tedious if you bounce between multiple services on a regular basis. If you want to maintain several encrypted folders and plan on using them often, I highly recommend upgrading to the $40 Unlimited Personal license--both to cut back on the headache and to support the developers of this excellent piece of software.
