Top Free Open Source Disk Encryption Software - TrueCrypt

Toady  is another disk encryption software, it's open source and cross-platform, it could work on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

I've introduced some security softwares, they have different characteristics. You could hide  your files easily with Easy File Locker, and TrueCrypt likes Comodo Disk Encryption, it gives you more sense of security, but TrueCrypt is more attractive in features. It is an absolute ultimate free encryption software.

TrueCrypt could create a virtual encrypted volumes and mount it as a real disk, you can hide it or not. Just like virtual drive software such as Daemon, it could change the disc image file ". iso " into a CD-ROM partition. TrueCrypt could Encrypt an entire hard disk partition or a device, such as USB flash drive and all of these are automatically and transparently in real time. Its principle is very simple and easy to understand, but some advanced features are not easy to use, like hide operating system.
So if you take the time to see TrueCrypt's tutorials, you'll find out how powerful it is, and don't be disappointed at it's intuitive interface;)  (The documentation.)
