I've not used this but it's odd that they don't tell you the encryption methods on MacUpdate. So for those who want to know (from their website): Supported algorithms (Mac) : Blowfish, RC2, RC4, RC5, DES, AES (128,192 and 256-bit) Supported algorithms (Windows) : Blowfish, RC4, RC5, DES, AES (128,192 and 256-bit)

Hey there - i just updated to OSX 10.15 and cryptor no longer works. Is there a fix / update on the way or is there some other way to decrypt the files without the UI? thanks

If you use this you should be aware that it leaves it's history file in ~/Library/Application Support/Cryptor/cryptor.hist. So you can srm it from the terminal.

I'm trying to encrypt a folder with a lot of files.. the status bar loaded not even half way and I got the spinning beachball. I left it like that for a few minutes and nothing happened. I figure it crashed so I forced quit it and am trying it again as I type this. Hope it works!

Tried it again and got this: There was an error when trying to encrypt 'v.zip' ! It failed to tell me what the error was though. I tried it a few more times and 3 times I get an error. Any ideas?

Neat little program and nice interface, however one thing I noted. If you leave the password blank in the preferences so that it prompts you, then if you leave the password blank at that stage and just click ok the file is encrypted. However, when you go to decrypt it, you can't. As soon as you double-click the '.damn' file you get the message "Decrypt error: Wrong password for file...". Ok, you wouldn't normally encrypt a file with a blank password but if you clicked ok by mistake before entering a password, and you had the option set to delete the original.... well, good job I tried this with a test file ;-)

Wrong password/algorithm for file 'Bank_Statement.damn-tf' ! Not a good start! The error above was caused by double-clicking on a .damn file It didn't even give me a chance to enter a password. I had "Link encryption and decryption passwords" checked. What gives? Lucky I didn't have the "Delete source after encryption/decryption" checked!

Did you rename the .damn file after encryption ? Was the encryption password blank ?

Could you send us a test encrypted file at support (at) limiter-inc.com ? That might help us track down the problem. Also, sorry for any inconvenience caused by the app.
