    Is there an application that works on the Treo 650 to encrypt individual files or folders on the SD card? I'm interested in carrying some sensitive files with me 24/7.
    Thanks!

    Take a look at TealLock.

    I will second the mEncrypter. I have used it for quite some time and I am very pleased with it.

    TealLock is for locking down the system. It does not offer any encryption.

    That's not true. TealLock offers encryption for both RAM and card-based files.

    hi,

    having read this thread it seemed liked mencryptor was the program that would suit my purposes, but i quickly ran into two problems.

    first the program would not recognise my external SD card, which it needs to do before it can do anything. I got past the first "welcome screen" to a screen with lots of icons and a space for files to be listed. in this space was the message "No external card found". any attempts to proceed further (eg by clicking on an icon) caused the whole unit to reboot.

    i contacted Toysoft and they rapidly sent me three different versions in turn (none of which helped), they also suggested renaming the card, resetting the Palm, all the obvious things, again no joy, in fact it worsened the situation - attempts to launch the prog from the main Launcher (or Zlauncher) now cause whole unit to reboot at this point. Toysoft appear to have run out of suggestions now. Any clues? Im using a Treo600 with latest firmware, and a 512MB PQI SD card, heaps of other 3rd party progs. Generally its a extremely trouble-free unit.

    second issue: i came across a recent User Review on Palmgear which suggests concern over the program's security. I sent this along to Toysoft who replied (a bit defensively methinks) that the person probably wasnt using the program properly, and that I would be able to assess the proper operation of the prog myself (if i ever got it to work!). As a non-techie I dont thnk I would be able to assess the program properly. Any other users willing and able to simulate the experience of the poster whose comments are pasted below?

    After encrypting a file with the trial version, I
    looked at the SD card with a common hex editor. I was
    horrified to discover a complete, unencrypted copy of
    the file still on the card! The original file had
    simply been deleted, which only changes one letter of
    the file allocation table directory but leaves the
    file completely intact. Anyone with a simple hex
    editor can easily view the complete file after
    encrypting. Based on this experience, I recommend
    being very careful with any other security software
    from this company.


    Cheers

    RescoExplorer should do what you want and much much more.

    thanks skfny and CH for the tip on Rescoexplorer, does sound an interesting app all round

    re Encryption: after a detailed read of the Rescoexplorer manual it would seem that while not having the full encryption functionality of mencryptor, it comes closer than anything else out there. One thing though that is not mentioned at all in the manual is: what type of encryption is used? rather a glaring oversight. Anyone know? I found some references to the PocketPC version in which it appears that it is only supplied with 56 bit encryption but you can introduce stronger modules yourself somehow

    cheers

    I was just wondering this myself. When I encrypt files on my desktop using WinZip's "Zip 2.0 compatible encryption" option, I can open those with Resco Explorer. But if I choose to encrypt my desktop files with WinZip's 128-Bit AES option, Resco Explorer cannot open them. From that little decrypting experiment I will assume that RE's encryption method is nowhere close to AES standards.
