Description

During the user testing of the VeraCrypt beta, participants had a hard time understanding what Files and Disks refer to.

As we were also dealing with encrypted file containers and disk partitions and I used very short section titles ("Using Files" and "Using Disks"), the confusion was maximum. But I think understood that these naming are not clear enough when using in the context of documentation and would highly gain from being clarified.

I think that using a longer and more descriptive name would help, for example:

  • the Files browser
  • the Disks utility

I'll also consider adding the logo of the application as it appears in the activities overview.

We should also add this to our documentation style guide.
