OK, i've discussed TrueCrypt with you guys before. I know that Truecrypt (thank god) refuses to encrypt a systemtem partition for a whole disk encryption-solution, when encountering a bad cluster apon encryption-proces. But where do the other and commercial FDE-products stand on this? Does DriveCrypt and Pointsec refuse to encrypt a drive with a bad cluster? I can ofcourse aks the vendors in my own country, but: A: I think their knowledgde doesn't go that deep to give me an accurate answer B: there commercial, they'll probably want to sell me their FDE-producy regardless if it will work on my (perhaps) older drive with a few bad clusters. What do you guys think how other (in relation to Truecrypt) software would react to bad clusters upon encrypting a disk?
