When you run USBCrypt off the Start menu, you can see that its main window contains the Options button:

You can press the Options button to open the Options for USBCrypt window:

This window contains the following areas:

Folder to store the "spare key" files

This is the folder on your computer where USBCrypt stores the "spare key" files. (And also where USBCrypt is looking for the "spare key" files when you want to reset a password). If you choose a different folder and press OK, USBCrypt will prompt you to move the existing "spare key" files, if any, into that folder.

Check for updates automatically

If checked, this option causes USBCrypt to periodically connect to our web site to check for the availability of a newer version. If this option is not selected, then USBCrypt will display a message reminding you to check for the updates manually.

Restore defaults

Press this button if you want to restore the options shown on this screen to their default settings, as they were right after you've installed USBCrypt.

In addition to using the Options window, you can also press the Tools button to display a menu of several commands:

Bring back the messages that I've chosen not to show again

Choose this command to restore the USBCrypt messages that you have previously chosen not to show again.

Suppress/Restore "Low Disk Space" notifications

Choose this command to suppress or restore the notification messages displayed by Windows when the free space on the drives becomes relatively low. You may see such notifications after you have created a Virtual Encrypted Disk to occupy the whole space of host disk. In such a situation, the host disk would have very little unencrypted space left on it, causing Windows to display the "Low Disk Space" notifications. You can use this command to suppress (or restore back) such notifications, Note that if you use this command, you need to log off Windows and then log back on for the change to take effect. Note also that this command affects all drives, not just the ones encrypted with USBCrypt.
