A Safe Deposit Box is a kind of AllSecure item that allows you to securely store up to 2GB of compressed files and folders. Files stored in a Safe Deposit Box are ZIP-compressed and AES-256 encrypted.

Hard drive failure can strike when you least expect it. We highly recommend that you configure Time Machine (a feature in Mac OS X Lion), or another application, to perform automatic backups of the AllSecure database. Then, you'll never have to worry about losing any of the data stored in AllSecure.
To configure Time Machine, open System Preferences in Mac OS X and look for the Time Machine preference pane. You'll need an extra hard drive connected to your computer, if you don't already have one.
To configure another backup application, refer to that application's user manual or help guide. As long as your home folder (along with its subdirectories) is selected for backups, you have nothing to worry about when it comes to backing up AllSecure's database. (If you need to know the precise location of where the AllSecure database is stored, refer to the AllSecure Database Directory below.)
To perform a manual backup, simply copy the files from the AllSecure Database Directory to another hard drive, or USB jump drive.
To restore an AllSecure database, simply copy the backed-up database files (from wherever they are stored) into the AllSecure Database Directory. You will need to create the 'AllSecure' folder if it doesn't exist (the database files must be placed inside of it).
To replace an existing AllSecure database with another, delete all files and subfolders stored in the AllSecure Database Directory. Next, copy the replacement database files into the same directory.
To transfer an existing AllSecure database to another computer, copy the files from the AllSecure Database Directory to a storage device (e.g., hard drive or USB jump drive). Next, connect the storage device to the destination computer. Open the AllSecure Database Directory on the destination computer and delete all files and subfolders that are inside. Finally, copy the replacement database files to the same directory.
AllSecure Database Directory
The AllSecure database files are stored in the following location:
YourNameHere is your Mac OS X username.
Important: Before backing up or restoring AllSecure database files, ensure that the AllSecure application is completely closed; otherwise, database file corruption may occur.
AllSecure does not automatically delete the original files and folders from your computer because we do not want you to lose any data in the case that it is accidentally dragged into the app.
Once you have created a Safe Deposit Box, please drag the original data to your Mac's Trash folder, and then open Trash. From the Finder menu, select Secure Empty Trash. Next, click OK in the pop-up box to securely erase the original data from your hard drive.
From the AllSecure application menu, select Preferences. Then, click the Change Password button and follow on-screen instructions.
From the AllSecure application menu, select Check for Updates. Follow the on-screen instructions to update the software.
Click File and then Print in the application menu. If you would like to print certain items only, be sure to select them in AllSecure before you begin printing—only the selected items will be printed. If you do not select any items, all items in AllSecure will be printed.
AllSecure has item type called a Safe Deposit Box that was designed specifically for this purpose. Just like a real safe deposit box, you can place anything and everything inside an AllSecure Safe Deposit Box.
