Hi guys, Does anyone know the disk footprint of the Truecrypt bootloader? I know Truecrypt needs about 32Kb of space at the disk start, so I would guess <MBR> <32KB footprint> <1st partition> I'm wondering how this will coexist with the GPT, since the GPT's footprint is larger than the MBR (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GUID_Partition_Table). I'd like to convert back from MBR -> GPT but if this will clobber the Truecrypt bootloader I'll have to wait to truecrypt to start learning the new standard (GPT). I couldn't find these details on truecrypt's website ... BTW, I don't like the way Truecrypt's forums are so ... policed. I don't like their licensing either ... wished they'd LGPL it or there was another FOSS that's as good as Truecrypt. Thanks! ============================================== Background: I recently used Truecrypt to encrypted my entire Windows 7 partition on my Macbook (aluminium) and moved sensitive information over to that partition. Before: A GPT based partitioning scheme (with a hybrid MBR). After (following Truecrypt's Windows wizard) An MBR only : The main GPT table at the start of the disk was wiped out by the Truecrypt wizard. My partitions themselves are intact since the GPT and MBR agree on start and end addresses of each partition was well as partition types.
