Ana's Archiver is a password-based strong encryption archival program for Microsoft Windows. Ana's Archiver requires Microsoft .NET Framework runtime (1.0 or any upper version) to be present in your system. By default, Ana's Archiver does not write any data in registry or any configuration files.
Ana's Archiver allows you to create encrypted file archives and be able to preview entry files without having to explicitly decrypt them and works best with image files. Security means, in general, spending more time.
You need to type passwords, think a little bit more and delete (wipe) traces. The good news is that Ana's Archiver helps you to automate the most common file protection tasks.
Ana's Archiver can archive files and directories. For files, the file name is preserved. For directories, the relative path of files with regard to the directory name is preserved. Ana's Archiver ignores empty directories and does not include them in the archive files.
The key data for the archive are used to generate internal keys for the encryption algorithm. Even if a single password is used for many archives, the internal keys will be always different for the head, and for each entry, and for each archive.
Ana's Archiver has been optimized to work with image files. While Ana's Archiver can encrypt / decrypt files of arbitrary size, the internal in-memory viewer will work best with files of moderated size. All in all, Ana's Archiver is a very nice password-based strong encryption archival program for Microsoft Windows.
