Flycryptor is very easy to use but seems to be a lot slower than Truecrypt.
For example: copying 616MB text files took:
32 seconds without encryption
35 seconds inside of a Truecrypt container
45 seconds in a Fycryptor container
I'm not completely sure about the significance (though the results were the
same on repetition): a search on a text phrase in 6,000 e-mails (OE) took
about as long in Flycryptor as without encryption.
Has anyone experience with both programs and/or a general advice what
program is to be preferred?
Thanks in advance, Nico
