    Well, hope you'll be satisfied with the program. It does everything I expect from a encrypting program. Plus it's easy and light:)

    AES128 and SHA1 are alarming. Why not AES256 and SHA512 at least?

    This
    http://netcpp.com/Encrypt.htm
    does support AES256 and SHA512.


    TrueCrypt is free, open source, and is exceptionally professional
    http://www.truecrypt.org/
    It can do blazing fast live encryption of entire partitions.

    Alarming because more secure options are as fast and as easily programmed as the ones mentioned.

    You need to fix your file/share permissions, encryption doesn't really matter when others can just delete those files.
