E4M Encryption For The Masses - E4M Encryption For The Masses - E4M Encryption For The Masses is an on-the-fly disk encryption product. What this means is create a volume on your hard disk, CDROM, floppy or other media which is essentially just a normal file. The file however is in fact a file system itself. It contains all the structures needed by your operating system to recognise the file as a file system of a particular type such as FAT or NTFS. This is called a "file hosted volume".
Or you could choose a blank or unwanted partition on a local hard disk or floppy disks and format it using E4M. You can then mount this new encrypted volume, and use it like you would any other drive. This is called a "Raw partition volume".
The only difference is that Raw partition volumes do not have a file system in the middle, so they provide an encrypted file system on top of a Raw partition. As opposed to file hosted volumes which need an existing file system to "host" the volume file. An example would be a E4M volume called "myfiles.vol" located on the C drive, rather than the same volume located on the second partition of your hard disk.
To your operating system, these new volumes will work exactly like your C drive, or any other drive on your system.
Tools are provided to "mount" a volume, and to create a volume. The process of mounting a volume involves pretending that the volume file or partition is in fact a removable media device attached to your system. FREEWARE FILE.

Without the correct passphrase the files on the virtual drive are totally inaccessible. Once the passphrase has been entered correctly and the drive is mounted the new virtual drive can then be used as a normal drive, files can be saved and retrieved to the drive and you can even install applications onto the encrypted drive. Scramdisk allows virtual disks to be stored in a number of ways: In a container file on a FAT formatted hard disk. On an empty partition.
