I use full disk encryption primarily, and have been using Drivecrypt Plus Pack for many years now. It's very stable, even to crashes and other funky stunts that the computer may pull from time to time. However, one issue I had was that it was immensely slow. Transfer speed of large files maxed out at 20-30MB/sec, and considering that my HDDs were getting larger I needed to switch. About a week back, I switched to Truecrypt, and now I wonder if it is really a good option. Been reading the Truecrypt forums recently, and it seems that Truecrypt is really unstable; people report crashes, missing data, glitches, etc... on an extremely regular basis. I was hoping I can gather some opinion from this un-moderated forum. Is truecrypt as good as it sounds? Or should I consider alternatives like Bestcrypt and PGP? Also, will commercial software be as fast as Truecrypt? I can get up to 50-60Mb/sec transfer rates now with TC.
