BCArchive is a compressing and archiving tool that has been especially designed for all those security paranoids out there. It enables to create archives and keep them away from prying eyes with encryption and password protection.
The program is very easy to use. In fact, you don't need to open it: simply right click on the files you want to archive and select the appropriate option in the context menu. Plus, the program enables you to select the kind of encryption method you want to use. The whole procedure is simple and fast. Just remember to use strong passwords, because if you keep on using your own name as your universal password, programs like BCArchive are simply useless.
My only complaint about this app is that self-extracting files don't seem to work. After creating one, I tried to open it on another PC without having BCArchive installed and all I got was an error message.
A great tool to protect private data in compressed encrypted archives.
