What is Exces for Mac

Exces... Find yourself needing to protect secret files? Need to hide those love letters from your past loved one? Or maybe you need to hide those invoices your little sister keeps fiddling with.

Here's your solution! Exces. Simple, pretty, secure. Exces allows you to protect your precious files with the click of a button. Just pick a password, lock, and you're good to go. Exces uses the strong, uncracked AES encryption standard.

Exces is a tool that lets the users create password-protected vaults. The ease of use and the attractive interface are Exces' key features. Each vault is protected using the same encryption algorithm Apple uses for FileVault - AES 128. Exces features a password assistant, to help choose strong passwords. Exces now also has a shrink vault feature, which lets you easily shrink a vault to the minimum possible disk space.

I guess I won't be using this, even though I thought I liked it, and I have a licence. I had a hard time getting it to work however, and after I spent hours figuring it out wrote to the developer to tell him about it (with details). Just got an answer: "Glad you got it working." Just so you know how this guy treats his customers.

I used Exces 1.5 a few times, then found that the program wouldn't run anymore - and the two "vault" files that I'd created wouldn't open. 15 gigs of data - out of reach! I contacted the author for help, but didn't hear back...but I found a way to open my files that I thought I'd post in case anyone else has the same problem. Take your "vault" file and rename it to remove the ".exc" extension (your Mac will ask REALLY? and you'll say "yes"). The file magically turns into a folder, inside of which will be several files including a sparseimage. Doubleclick on that, and you'll get a MacOS message asking for the password (the same one you used with Exces). Once you've entered it, a new window will open with your now-accessible files inside.

The developer has failed to provide me with the serial number as part of the past MacHeist. I've emailed them and been met with silence. I included the receipt as proof of my purchasing the MacHeist Bundle but no go. If this is an indication of their response to emails, then I'm glad I am not having trouble with the software. Black mark in my book. What did you say the other software was named that did about the same thing? BB

Another useless app. The in OSX integrated DiskUtility tool does the same job out of the box for free and even more. If you don't wanna waste your money but still use another tool than DiskUtility, there are DropDMG and DMG Converter witch are way better than this junk.

Exellent App. I tested the beta and since I use it to hide some important files from curious persons.

I have used this since I got it with the MacHeist/MacUpdate bundle, and while what other reviewers have said (about this being a wrapper for sparseimages) is true, there are two bits of functionality which, to my knowledge, cannot be done with DiskUtility, or not in one step: resizing the sparseimage to be larger or smaller. Exces now can do that, and there is no longer a 10 GB limit on the vault size. Another minor benefit to using Exces is one of obfuscation. I keep my vaults on an external hard drive, and if that hard drive was stolen and someone tried to double-click the vault, it would say that it could not open the file. A minor thing, yes, but it would repel the average thief, and the AES-128 encryption should keep the more savvy hackers away (the ones who might try to use Disk Utility to open the .exc file). Also, a previous release was supposed to fix a minor curosr focus problem, but when I launched the app it wasn't fixed. I emailed the developer and within minutes he had responded and fixed the problem. This also has potential to incorporate even more features that are not currently in Disk Utility. I look forward to seeing what the developer comes up with.

I don't know what this guy is up to, but there is absolutely no reason for anybody to use this app or pay for it. It's just a disguised, defective wrapper for the DiskImages framework. The mysterious super-secret vaults it creates are merely obfuscated sparseimages, the same kind you can create for free using Disk Utility, or with cheaper, better third-party apps such as DropDMG. The only differences I can see are, first, that this app somehow manages to impose a spurious 10-GB limitation on the size of the image, and second, that the files can't be shared with anyone who doesn't also have this app installed. Well, actually they can, if the recipient goes to the trouble of extracting the sparseimage file from the bundle it's hidden in, but what's the point?

Wow, I really have not seen a positive review here. It makes me quite hesitant to try this out. I just got a copy from the Macheist/MU bundle and was thinking of seeing how it works. I guess I might just stick with Disk Utility for this type of thing. At least I can be assured that I am not locked into a proprietary format if these guys go out of business tomorrow.
