Re: [PLUG] Simple Hard drive Encryption?

Are you trying to encrypt the OS as well as the boot partition, or just data?

Thanks guys, although it looks like truecrypt doesn't like it that Ive got this formatted in reiserfs, now computer doesnt recognize the drive at all and truecrypt refuses to work with it, ah well, Ill get it reformatted and try again when I have some free time.

another vote for truecrypt.

specifically, i always go with AES256 or higher if possible whenever i
need to encrypt anything if you're looking for a wider, more vague answer.
