    So here is the scenario: Say I installed Cloudfogger on my laptop on which I have my dropbox folder… all files are encrypted and safe. Then I had my laptop stolen… I go on the webbased dropbox to detach the stolen laptop’s subscription to my dropbox account and then to access a couple of my files via the web… well I cant as it is encrypted. what is the mitigation plan then?!?!?!

    BEWARE of this software if you are a DROPBOX user. Anyone who has a shared folder on Dropbox with you can use Cloudfogger to encrypt your files. You won’t be able to access them, even if you download Cloudfogger and open your own account, you cannot change your old files (PDFs, Word docs, PPTs, etc.) so that you can access them–it locks you out. This is a SERIOUS problem that impacted the <1000 files (5 gig +) PDFs that I store on Dropbox and distribute to students. Furthermore, the support at Cloudfogger is HORRIBLE–I received no reply to my problem. I think this encryption software has too many bugs right now and I would NOT recommend it for use

    There is none!!! I had a similar problem. And don’t ask them for help, because you will get NONE.

    Worst support in the world. NONEXISWTENT. Get ticket numbers but no support and no way to contact. Have files that cannot be unlocked and they refuse to help!

  5. Ctrl+alt+del

    This is the worst support I have ever experienced for a mature (??) product. As stated, do not use with dropbox as it will make your files unusable. This software is a superb idea badly executed.

    If your HD (or computer) crashes and you lost the “Key file” access, forget your encrypted files, even if you still have your password in a safe place.

    This happens in OFFLINE-ONLY ACCOUNTS (Without using the Cloudfogger Servers)

    So I’m a bit confused here. I’ve only recently started using Cloudfogger, so maybe I’m missing something obvious here. But couldn’t you download Cloudfogger on the computer you’re using to recover your Dropbox files from the webbased Dropbox? Then just sign in on Cloudfogger using your Cloudfogger password and then unencrypt the Dropbox files from there? Or am I missing something?

    Another option is http://safeboxapp.com. It also encrypts encrypts your content before it is synced to the cloud by Dropbox.

    Safebox doesn’t require you to setup an account and so doesn’t suffer from some of the problems discussed in this thread. (disclaimer: I’m a member of the two man team who created Safebox).

    I knew there was a catch. This type of software should be really free. You can only encrypt 5 folders? 5 folders total in the whole dropbox for example? What about 10 folders within a folder? Will that count as 1 folder or 11? If so, this will not be useful to most people.

    Cloudfogger if you are reading, two suggestions:

    – Get rid of this silly folder limitation or increase to a reasonable number. Better to get rid of it. I will have to uninstall.
    – Place a checkmark icon on folders and files to let the user know the folder and all its contents have been encrypted. Yes you say they are encrypted but the doubt remains. Now I look at the folder/file in my dropbox and have no clue whether it has been encrypted or not. Sure, you can exit Cloudfogger and start it again, then open dropbox to verify that it asks you for a password but this could be resolved by placing a different color checkmark on folders/files than dropbox’s.
