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.

Cloak - OVSoft - Cloak is an encryption / decryption program, with a difference. Most encryption programs offer only mild security or security based on the complexities of the algorithms deployed. Cloak is different, Cloak facilitates total encryption where each byte of the source file can be encrypted independently with an unpredictable key byte, yielding not just strong encryption, but potentially total security of the encrypted file in transit provided the keys are kept safe and not recycled. Any computer files can be encrypted and keys can be generated by the program or you can create your own keys and then import them into Cloak. Cloak also provides for secure messaging. In this mode of operation, text messages are keyed in and encrypted. The difference in this mode of operation lies in the decryption process, messages are decoded to screen in a horizontal text scroller. There are additional security benefits by this form of message handling. Without decoding to file, the possibility of the recipient compromising security by leaving a decoded file or print out available to interception is reduced if not avoided completely. Both the sender and the recipient of encrypted information must have Cloak installed and the key used to encrypt the data.
