    TrueCrypt containers can be used on Windows machines without Admin priv using TCExplorer:
    • TrueCrypt volumes become truly portable (workplace, schools, public libraries, hotel business centers, internet cafes)
    • files within the container are accessed individually on-demand so unopened files are not exposed to admin snooping, etc.
    • drag-and-drop GUI for manual import/export (encrypt/decrypt) to disk
    • built-in text file viewer so quick-view can be done in memory alone
    • double-click an individual file in the container to invoke automated processing:
      - file is auto-exported (decrypted) to a temp folder on USB (or user specified location)​
      - temp file is passed to OS to automatically open host application (just like double-clicking a file in Windows)​
      - when temp file is closed it is auto-imported (encrypted) back into the TrueCrypt container​
      - temporary file is automatically wiped (complete with Eraser support)​

    • Currently supports TrueCrypt 4.3a containers only due to a recent encryption mode change from LRW to XTS with the release of TrueCrypt 5.x (but an update should fix this by the end of March 2008 )
    • No keyfile support (but this is slated for future support)
    • No hidden volume 'protection' mechanisms (but perhaps in a future release)
    • No NTFS support within a volume (but perhaps in a future release)

    P.S. sorry for the double post in an old thread; meant to start this new thread
