TruPax Overview

TruPax generates Small TrueCrypt iconTrueCrypt - compatible container files from arbitrary sets of files and folders. Such files match exactly the size of the contained material and can be mounted by TrueCrypt, but also directly extracted using TruPax itself. Latter also works for containers formatted with FAT32 by TrueCrypt itself, thanks to fat32-lib. For all of that there are no administrator rights required when using TruPax.

The generated file system of the containers is UDF 1.02, which is supported by all of the modern operating systems. Most of them support writing - meaning files in a container can also be deleted or new ones added. TruPax can wipe files after container generation, or just as a separate action. You can also invalidate any TrueCrypt container with it very quickly.

TruPax is completely written in Java, to run it version 7 or higher is required. The installation is simple and optional, thus TruPax is highly portable.

Next to the UI there is a command line version, and with it TruPax can be used in fully automated scenarios.

TruPax works fast and is capable to use all available CPU cores. Containers get generated in just one pass.
