Boxcryptor 2.29
Boxcryptor allows you to encrypt your data before uploading it to an online backup provider.

The news that Dropbox is changing its terms and conditions to allow the company to hand over your backed up to the authorities if required has led to much murmurings of discontent. There’s no doubt that online backup is increasingly popular – and for good reason – but if you’re worried about the contents of your files falling into the wrong hands, you’ll want to consider your options carefully.

There are backup services – like Wuala – that will encrypt your data locally. That means the data is encrypted and decrypted on whichever computer you use to access it, so Wuala and its ilk have no means of accessing your data, never mind handing it over to someone else.

But what if your backup provider encrypts the data after it’s been uploaded? Must you switch to a different provider to avoid being caught out? The answer is, not necessarily. Boxcryptor has been designed to plug the gap: you create an encrypted folder using the program, then synchronise that folder with your online backup provider whoever it is.

It’s all very simple to use: install, set up an encrypted folder, designate a drive letter for it and enter the password you’ll need to access its contents. And that’s it: access the folder through My Computer like any other drive, then simply sync its contents to your online backup provider instead of your insecure folder. Job done.

BoxCryptor 2.29 brings these improvements (see changelog for more):

- Updated: Privacy Policy
- Fixed: Google Drive File Stream
- Fixed: App could start multiple times
- Bug fixes and improvements

Verdict:

Quick, simple, elegant. There are other – completely free – methods for encrypting data before uploading it, but none of them are as easy as this.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
