    Hello everyone,
    Does anybody know if there is a good software wich makes a full hard disk encryption?
    I heard about "Drive Crypt Plus Pack" from Securstar, but i've never used.
    Does anybody used already? Or knows another one?
    Thanks so much for that.

    Carver, Those are good choices for single-file encryption (AxCrypt) and container/device encryption (Truecrypt) but neither does FDE/WDE.

    Daniel,

    - You already mentioned the SecurStar product
    - Consumer version of SecureDoc from WinMagic is at http://www.mysecuredoc.com/
    - PGP w/ Whole Drive Encryption https://www.pgp.com/products/wholediskencryption/index.html
    - CompuSec (free from CE-Infosys) English Version: http://www.ce-infosys.com/english/downloads/free_compusec/index.html
    - SafeGuard Easy from Utamico http://americas.utimaco.com/safeguard_easy/

    Good luck!

    Hello,
    At my workplace, laptops are encrypted with SafeGuard.
    Does not interfere with work, but when something gets wrong - or you cannot boot or such - you're ficked.

    Well, i am using DriveCrypt 3.9 , and it´s been very good so far. I discovered a tool in this software where i can hidden my OS and create a second password which takes me into a fake OS. Very useful.
    Now i need to create an encrypted folder to share in a network, but i think i´ll have to buy another software, i am not able to do this on this software.
    Any tip?
    Thanks again

    Well, if you've got DriveCrypt Plus Pack from SecurStar and you're happy with that, you can try ShareCrypt. I never used but i know that it does what you're looking for.
