    Why did you choose .zip as standard file format? Quite weird!

    nCrypted Cloud Support

    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.
