The Interface does not appeal at first sight; one has to make research for knowing how the software works. It could be seen as a program especially designed for professional users that know how to handle things in the world of encryption. When deciding to create an encrypted file container, one has to choose the volume type: standard TrueCrypt volume or hidden TrueCrypt volume. If we are talking about federal information, top secret or simply files that must come in the hands of others, the second options is perfect. With hidden TrueCrypt volume one may give his password to others and still don’t have access to files because it is hidden. It may be difficult for an inexperienced one to create hidden volumes but the program provides a link straight to the official site with additional information.
One also has to choose Encryption options: the encryption algorithm (AES-Advanced Encryption Standard is the most common) and Hash algorithm and then specify the size of the container one wishes to create and afterwards select a password that is hard to guess and with long characters.
