Looks like a fork of the original product:

Re: TrueCrypt returns as CipherShed

Did the Truecrypt developers change their license?

Not that I know of.  I think people are just forking without permission.

Re: TrueCrypt returns as CipherShed

Well its not like an anonymous developer will sue anyone, but it's still their property and if they don't want someone to reuse their code...

Re: TrueCrypt returns as CipherShed

I would leave well alone and look for another solution...even paid is less risky in the long run. Smiley Sad

Re: TrueCrypt returns as CipherShed

I agree Baldrick. I would be worried about people jumping on the bandwagon, things are not always as they seem to be.

Re: TrueCrypt returns as CipherShed

I have heard that "DiskCryptor" that is also open source and free...but not being an expert in the field I would not know how good it  is.  Still, there must be some reviews of it now that TrueCrypt is effectively yesterday's application?

Re: TrueCrypt returns as CipherShed

Hi Solly:

   Here is a current review on DiskCryptor byl PcWorld for your review here is the link

http://www.pcworld.com/article/2012853/review-diskcryptor-a-worthwhile-encryption-program-thats-easy...

 

 

At a Glance

Encrypt entire drives with DiskCryptor, which runs as a service and is configured via a dialog. This free, open-source encryption utility also works in Windows 8 desktop mode.

Pros
  • Encrypts entire drives at the sector level
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • No context menu support
  • Doesn't hide encrypted drives when not mounted
