I want to place this topic as a suggestion.

- While creating the storage file make it to work only for that application. i.e the mounting can be done only with that application not by any other apps.

- Take information from the application which is creating the storage file and keep the information in the root of the storage file.


Now I feel bit insecure since any application came to know that I'm using Solfs then it can easily mount.

Also, using the sample program from Solfs one can able to get the password used for my storage. It shows what password is used.

I feel insecure because of these things. Please add unique storage option.

This is solved by either using callback mode or by creating a custom build of SolFS (when you have a source code of SolFS). Callback mode is an easier option.

Hmm? The password is neither stored in the storage nor even used directly (the encryption key is different for each page and it's derived from the key) and the password can be different for each file in the storage.
