Here is the next new build of DiskCryptor it improves the usability and provides support for windows 10 feature upgrades.

The boot loader is not signed for secure boot, so for now, to use it, disabling secure boot is required.
The tool is able to use a signed shim Bootloader from Red Hat and install it, however for now the required files are not included in the installation package, as its a more fiddly installation and given the release is a beta it sounded reasonable to try to minimize potential issues.

- This is a beta build so keep a backup and a Windows 2 Go drive on hand just in case.

As the volume format did not change between 1.1 and 1.2 releases you can use a old 1.1 version for your Windows 2 Go drive, although then the installation/removal of the UEFI boot loader wont be available.

27.04.2020 - 1.2.2/848.118.202

Added

  • Add compatibility with Windows 10 feature upgrade procedure using ReflectDrivers mechanism
  • Added additional EFI loader messages to the UI
  • Added option to enable EFI picture password from UI
  • Added remaining message charakters display

Changed

  • Improved UEFI loader CLI password entry
  • Restructured bootloader config GUI

Here is the next new build of DiskCryptor it fixes some issues and adds some features, but mostly important it improves the boot performance a great lot.

The Disk Cryptor driver needed to be updated, and since the ReactOS foundation no longer offer a driver signing service, I head to use a leaked code signing certificate I found laying around the Internets. This means some anti malware applications may wrongfully flag it as potentially dangerous.

Pre-release

Here is the first new build of DiskCryptor since 2014 its a fork of the project and starting with version 1.2
It comes with a UEFI compatible boot-loader and various fixes to make it work with EFI installations on GPT disks.

The boot loader is not signed for secure boot, so for now, to use it, disabling secure boot is required.
The tool is able to use a signed shim Bootloader from Red Hat and install it, however for now the required files are not included in the installation package, as its a more fiddly installation and given the release is a beta it sounded reasonable to try to minimize potential issues.

The Disk Cryptor driver needed to be slightly updated, and since the ReactOS foundation no longer offer driver signing service, I head to use a leaked code signing certificate I found laying around the Internets.
