I use PicoCrypt for encrypting single files and folders. Ectremely small, fast and reliable peace of software (IMHO).
Also I used to chat with the creator of the program - he is a very nice and clever guy.
Try it out .
PicoCrypt looks promising. No need to be admin, small file size, cross (desktop) platform, and a portable Windows version. If it works well from a USB drive, I can see it taking a place on my Ventoy drive. Cheers for the suggestion.
Happy you find it useful .
Pico indeed works from a flash drive. Actually, Pico works from everywhere)). I used Veracrypt for encrypting everything, but now I have a small friend called Pico for individual files (pdf, txt, doc) and folders. Vera still rules on the full disc encryption or full partitions/ usb flash encryption. However, encrypting separate files is much more convenient with Picocrypt.
By the way, there should be a professional security audit of Picocrypt soon. It was mentioned on it’s reddit thread.
