TrueCrypt- make your data safe

TrueCrypt is a software application used for real-time on-the-fly encryption. It is distributed without cost, and has source code available, although under a restrictive license. It can create a virtual encrypted disk within a file or a device-hosted encrypted volume on either an individual partition or an entire storage device. It supports Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux (using FUSE) and encrypted volumes can be made portable. TrueCrypt is distributed under the TrueCrypt Collective License.

    Are you sure that TrueCrypt uses FUSE? I think TrueCrypt was around before FUSE existed…

    At boot up and log in, how do you access this newly encrypted drive? Is there a method to auto-mount it (with password prompt) within the /etc/fstab file, or are you forced to start TrueCrypt at login and mount it from within there?

    If your system has issue and you need to boot into Single User Mode (no graphics) can the encrypted data still be accessed?

    I’ve seen enough hard drives go bad and I have attempted to recover data from them (some successfully, others not so); if the data is encrypted there is no possible recovery from a crashed or bad hard drive.
