You're looking at CleverCrypt's help file. If you're new to CleverCrypt, this is the place to Start! This help file will guide you through the Steps you need to Create, use and manage your secure drives. What does CleverCrypt do?The first thing you should know is what CleverCrypt actually does. CleverCrypt allows you to create a secure 'virtual drive', where you can safely place all of your sensitive files. A virtual drive is a drive that, although it appears to be a normal hard drive, is actually stored in a file on your computers real hard drive. So it is a drive within a drive, or 'virtual' drive. The drive looks and works just like a normal hard drive, so you can create, edit or delete your files and Folders just as you would on a normal drive. The difference, apart from the FACT it is a virtual drive - not a physical drive, is that the CleverCrypt virtual drive is encrypted, which means that all the data is scrambled so only you can access it. Technically, this would make the drive an 'encrypted virtual container drive', but to keep things simple, we simply call it a 'secure drive'. The name 'secure drive' is what we refer to the virtual drives as in both this manual and the CleverCrypt program.
