In the recent past a number of cloud storage providers came to existence as Google Drive, SkyDrive, ADrive etc. Since the world is moving towards cloud storage the future of storage system and files are shared and kept on the cloud servers where you don't have any control on the on the privacy of the file stored. However there are various free compression and encryption tools are available for data security of the files. But still the use of all the tools is not handy enough as you need to decrypt the data on your local machine before
using it and all this is tiresome and lengthy process.
What is Cloudfogger and what it does:-
Cloudfogger is a program which when installed will create a Cloudfogger Drive (usually X:) on your machine which looks similar to OS drive (C:/) by properties, and makes the procedure of file encryption and decryption very handy and fast. You can encrypt and decrypt the file from the context menu and the file icon and association will change. All the files you encrypt on c: will be available in unencrypted form in (X:/).
You can also make sure the file is shared only to those you have authorized as even they will get a mail notification for the file shared with a temporary password to access the file. You can see in the image below the options to Fogg (Encrypt) the file and once you done it the file icon will change to Cloudfogger.
You can always lock your account so that decryption of file is not possible until you want it as you need to login to the application again to have access to it.
