making truecrypt volume in file or partition?


Recommended Posts

Hi, have just bought an 8gb voyager GT, and would be grateful for some general advice about configuring truecrypt.

1] Does running truecrypt have a real-life discernible effect on speed?

2] What are the pros and cons of making my truecrypt volume in a file versus a partition? I will be running in traveller mode.

many thanks indeed.

An encrypted volume would need to be mounted, which makes it appear as a new drive letter, and lets you store your files on an encrypted virtual disk. If you chose to encrypt a particular file instead, you can store it on any drive and it will remain encrypted.


Unfortunately, we have not done any testing on the speed impact of using TrueCrypt on our flash drives.
