Replace drop box with spider oak, or add truecrypt! Currently drop box is not encrypted from the users side. Spider oak is encrypted from the users side. This allows for better security. An other smart option would be to include truecrypt by default, that way users can encrypt data before they use drop box.

truecrupt is wonderful and for the added security, it could be bundled in the DVD edition. Supporting this.

The need is because user passwords for drop box are stored on drop boxs web site. So the only way to truly keep drop box safe is to encrypt your information first. This way even if your drop box password id compromised your data will still be encrypted with a password from the users side.

I agree, please add TrueCrypt. Although, I don't see the need to drop DropBox.

Truecrypt is an easy app to use and appears to be quite a solid encryption system.

TrueCrypt is a fully open-source tool for encrypting data. That data can be on a completely encrypted hard drive, or just an encrypted image file. Thankfully, the encryption works the same regardless of your platform, so Windows and OS X users can share encrypted files between computers.

We really like to use TrueCrypt in combination with Dropbox, another cross-platform tool, to protect our data in the cloud. Pictured here is the OS X version of TrueCrypt, mounting an encrypted image as a local hard drive. Whether you are storing sensitive data or Grandma's secret recipe, TrueCrypt can keep your data private, even if it's stored on someone else's server.
