Review article: 

Was for folder hiding category

Pros: 

Files are decrypted and encrypted as they are opened and saved, files always remain secure.

Product type: 

Runs as a stand-alone program on a user's computer

Cons: 

TrueCrypt once fully met my criteria for selecting encryption software. However, it appears that the developers of TrueCrypt just dropped a bombshell that raises a huge red-flag on the security of TrueCrypt. It takes some time to learn how to use TrueCrypt if you've never used any sort of encryption program before. Requires administrator privileges to run in traveler mode.
