Create mobile safe

As soon as you have created a safe, you can also turn it into a mobile safe, i.e. you can configure it so that you can use it on a USB stick or even send it via email.

In the data safe overview, select a safe that has been created and click on the Create mobile safe  button. A dialog now opens that will help you create a mobile safe. Click on  Next to start this process.

Mobile safe parameters

As with allocating safe parameters for standard safes, you have the option here of changing parameters. However, with mobile safes there are only limited setting options.

  • Automatically select safe drive: The safe looks like a hard disk drive when it is open. You can either allocate a fixed drive designation letter for the safe or let the system select one automatically. Automatic selection is generally recommended here.
  • Link safe with data medium: Here you can specify that the mobile safe can only be used with the USB stick or hard disk drive that you created it on, for example. If you do not link the safe to the data medium, you can e.g. send the safe file (recognizable by the file extension tsnxg) as an email attachment or move/copy it to another data medium.

Mobile safe medium

Specify here the medium on which you want to save the mobile safe. This can be e.g. a USB stick, an external hard disk or a CD/DVD.

Note: If you are saving a safe to a CD or DVD, this can of course only be opened and read. It is not possible to amend files and directories in the safe with this type of data medium.

Mobile safe size

Here you can find information on how much storage space the safe needs on the target data medium. If the storage space is too big, you can cancel the creation of the mobile safe.

Note: In addition to the actual safe size, there is an extra 6 MB of driver data so you can open the safe on a Windows system on which the G DATA software is not installed.

Mobile safe - finish setup

Now finish creating the mobile safe by clicking on the End procedure button. If you want, you can now see in the file browser the file on your chosen storage medium where the mobile safe is located.
