SafeHouse volumes are large container files which hold your files needing to be protected. Volumes are standard Windows files which use the .SDSK file extension.
All volumes must have a name and location.
Choose the folder where your new volume should be located. Click the folder icon on the right to browser to a different location.
SafeHouse typically keeps your volumes in one common folder to make them easier to work with. This folder is named C:\SafeHouse.
Volumes can be located nearly anywhere, including:
Internal and external hard drives
USB Flash disks and memory sticks
NOTE: SafeHouse volumes cannot be created directly on CD/RW and DVD/RW devices. Volumes are compatible with these devices only in read-only mode. See more information on using SafeHouse with CD/DVDs.
Choose a filename for your volume.
Your new volume will be created using this name in the folder specified above. SafeHouse volumes are readily-identified in Explorer by their distinctive red icon shown here on the left.
