PGP BEYOND DANGEROUS Those bastards at PGP were already the gold standard for making it impossible to reach them. Now, Norton has nailed the coffin shut by thumbing their noses at Mac users. I have paid version 10.1.1.10 but can I find the upgrade button to 10.1.2? Hell no! For most needs, Lion's new Whole Disk Encryption will do fine but no more sending PGP disk attachments, it looks like. I now send documents by encrypted PDF in Preview but that still doesn't cover all of the uses I would put PGP to. For example, Lion Whole Disk Encryption will only work when there is a system installed. So in cases where I would create a PGP Disk and burn it to DVD, it would appear I am out of luck, (Unless I can find a way to keep using 10.1.1.10 in Lion.) I was already pissed off with PGP because somehow I found myself no longer able to run DiskWarrior on PGP Disks. I wrote to Alsoft to ask if they knew anything. Their tech guru replied: "Ok, I've installed PGP onto my computer and I see the basic problem. When the new PGP is installed, it does something to modify the IORegistry (which is what keeps track of all hardware and mounted devices on the computer) and has an effect on the entire functionality of the computer, not just PGP-modified disks. For example, with PGP installed, DiskWarrior showed that my computer's main hard drive, that was currently running the active operating system on the computer, had no partition map! This, of course, would be impossible! This indicates that the partition map was being obscured from our view. Uninstall PGP - and everything is normal. I found other similar anomalies in my testing. My guess is that they are modifying something in the low-level of the operating system in case the user wants to utilize the Whole Disk Encryption feature. To me, this is beyond dangerous. So, that's what is happening. Nothing do be done to get past whatever changes they are making. Sorry I don't have a workaround for you to rebuild the directory of the PGP Disk Image files."

You pay per year? What happens if Symantec goes out of business or decides to drop this package? I will try and find an alternative for this that just doesn't die that PGP 8 did.

Not TOTALLY compatible with OS X 10.9 yet (I received an error message that PGPxxx.kext could not be installed) BUT...was also pleasantly surprised to see that my old PGP Desktop 9.x licence was able to activate/unlock it :-)

How bad can this get, it has nothing that the free GPGTools doesn't and actually GPGTools still is compatible with Apple Mail..., I thought I could export a subkey only to let me sign on my mobile phone but not to export my master private key to there, because after all is a mobile phone. Unfortunately this is not a feature on this 100$ bad software, GPG does a better job for free, Sad to say what I want to do can only be done byt GPG terminal, not as easy as it should.

But is GPG compatible with old PGP disk images? Does GPG even do disks? I think not. These are somewhat overlapping yet different solutions.

Well, yeah. But this URL: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH166098 says that 10.2.1 is available. But when you go to the Symantec download link, it also gets you a 10.2.0 dmg. So it's Symantec at fault. Typical Windows software company.

It is hard to believe that Symantec would be so brazen as to post this product on MacUpdate while they are in the midst of not coping with a fiasco resulting from its incompatibility with Lion 10.7.4.
