The Viivo program creates a folder named "Viivo" in the root of your user profile directory. Any unencrypted files placed in this folder cause Viivo to create compressed and encrypted copies in a Viivo-Encrypted folder in the root of your Dropbox directory. These secured files are what the Dropbox software and service synchronize to the Dropbox Cloud and any devices you choose to connect to it. The Viivo service keeps both of these folders in sync so that when you edit content on other devices, saved changes are securely synchronized through Dropbox and seamlessly decrypted with Viivo. This approach allows your computer to index plaintext content for searching and allows productivity applications to interact directly with plaintext data with no extra manual steps to decrypt beforehand and encrypt afterword. As soon as any file is "saved" to the Viivo folder, a compressed and encrypted copy is instantly created in Dropbox.
