The installation of this new version of Cryptainer LE is still easy and intuitive. You can place the program files where you want them.

You are given the option of running Cryptainer LE right after the installation is completed. When you first run Cryptainer LE you have to really pay attention. The reason is that you then pick where Cryptainer LE actually creates the hidden drive. Plus that is when you pick your password. And like they say if you lose or forget that password you are screwed. Well maybe they don't use those exact words..

When you are done with that part you will find that when you open Windows Explorer you have a brand new drive named Cryptainer. With this free version of Cryptainer you can have a drive size up to 25 Mb.

Now in this version you can also create encrypted files and send them via email. The recipient does not even have to have Cryptainer LE!

I use Cryptainer LE on my laptop to store the contents of my Personal Information Manager (PIM) that way I don't have to worry about my laptop being stolen.

In conclusion Cryptainer LE is a great program for keeping your files secure, and now for sending files securely. It is free so what are you waiting for? Go Get It!
