Quite weird! 0 nCrypted Cloud Support June 14, 2014 15:09 nCrypteCloud chose to use zip files files for several reasons. 1. Zip files are accessible on all platforms. 2. They support AES-256 bit encryption. 3. They support storing very large files. 4. There are lots of tools and libraries that already work with zip files. 5. If a user opens our zip files without nCryptedCloud they can see a "readme" file which states the file was encrypted with nCryptedCloud rather than just a random file extension with no identification of what happened to their file. I hope this give you a better understanding of our chose in file format. Please sign in to leave a comment.
