Version 2.10 comes with the following new features:
* Disk Firewall self-learning mode. When switched on, it keeps track of applications that are accessing the protected disk and composes a white list of applications that are allowed by the user to do so. When the disk is mounted next time, these rules are enforced automatically.
* Authenticity verification for Windows applications. This feature verifies whether a trusted application is authentic, and it is indeed the program that was once added allowed to work with the sensitive data (i.e. added to the white list). This way, Private Disk proactively protects the data from threats that come from compromised trusted applications (such as a program infected with a virus).
* PD File Move: organize your documents, and securely migrate them to a protected environment. The utility automatically finds the files you need, encrypts them, and then wipes out the originals, leaving no trace of their presence. File Move makes data migration simple and effortless; no file is left behind by accident, your privacy is guaranteed.
* Windows Vista support, 32 and 64-bit
