Acer eDataSecurity Management_

Acer eDataSecurity Management is handy file encryption utility that protects your files from being accessed by unauthorized persons. It is conveniently integrated with Windows explorer as a shell extension for quick and easy data encryption/decryption and also supports on-the-fly file encryption for MSN Messenger and Microsoft Outlook.

The Acer eDataSecurity Management setup wizard will prompt you for a supervisor password and default encryption. This encryption will be used to encrypt files by default, or you can choose to enter your won file-specific password when encrypting a file.

NOTE: The password used encrypt a file is the unique key that the system needs to decrypt it. If you lose the password, the supervisor password is the only other key capable of decrypting the file. If you lose both passwords, there will be no way to decrypt your encrypted file! Be sure to safeguard all related passwords!

Initialize Supervisor Password

The Supervisor Password serves two purposes:

  • 1)To grant access to the Personal Secure Disk.
  • 2)To provide you with a "last resort" to decrypt any files previously encrypted...

Please record and keep it In a secure place, and never disclose It to anyone else.
