  • Windows BitLocker

  • No encryption of dynamic disks, but command-line-encryption! Dynamic disks must be converted to basic disks with EasyUS Partition Master or Partition Guru before encrypting with Bitlocker. Windows BitLocker & "Bitlocker To Go" Drive Encryption is a data protection feature in Windows 10 Professional, Windows Vista Enterprise and Windows Vista Ultimate for client computers and in Windows Server 2008. BitLocker protects against data theft or exposure on computers that are lost or stolen, and offers more secure data deletion when computers are decommissioned. Bitlocker To Go (BTG) is essentially Bitlocker for external drives. It’s full volume encryption for all your USB drives: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rockyh/archive/2009/03/01/bitlocker-to-go.aspx »

  • DiskCryptor

  • DiskCryptor is the only truly free solution, provided under GNU General Public License (GPLv3), which offers encryption of all disk partitions, including the system partition. The main criteria for open-source software is the availability of its source code under one of the open source licenses. The only open-source alternative to DiskCryptor that has comparable features is TrueCrypt. However, because of the restrictive license under which TrueCrypt is provided — the TrueCrypt Collective License — TrueCrypt cannot be classified as a truly free software, as it places limits on the use and modification of its source code by developers. There are other alternatives with similar functionality, but they are fully proprietary ones, which makes them unacceptable to use for protection of confidential data. »

  • TruPax

  • TruPax generates TrueCrypt - compatible container files from arbitrary sets of files and folders. Such files match exactly the size of the contained material and can be mounted by TrueCrypt, but also directly extracted using TruPax itself. Latter also works for containers formatted with FAT32 by TrueCrypt itself, thanks to fat32-lib. For all of that there are no administrator rights required when using TruPax.
