Container File

Every Safe works with an encrypted Container File. It is the image of the drive stored in a big file. Your encrypted files and folders are actually stored in this Container File.

The Container File cannot be accessed if it resides in the Default Container Folder. The access to this folder is blocked to ensure a greater security (mostly against accidental deletion). You can use the information stored in an Container File only through east-tec SafeBit. The Container File is encrypted using the strong 256-bit AES encryption algorithm.

The size of the container file is limited only by the file-system you use:

  • Using NTFS file system: up to 128 GB per safe

  • Using FAT32 file system: up to 4 GB per safe.

Note: For best performance we recommend to use smaller containers.

The container file can be moved or resized at any time, and it supports password change.
