DiskCryptor is a free and open-source full disk encryption system for Microsoft Windows. It allows a PC’s entire hard drive or individual partitions to be encrypted, including where the OS is installed.

DiskCryptor uses either AES-256, Twofish, Serpent or a combination of cascaded algorithms in XTS mode to carry out encryption.

DiskCryptor has not been updated since 2014. VeraCrypt is now used as an alternative.

DiskCryptor has been modified by the Mamba ransomware.

The FBI have advised that if any of the DiskCryptor files are detected prior to the second reboot, attempts should be made to determine if the myConf.txt is still accessible. If so, then the password can be recovered without paying the ransom.
