I’ve been using TrueCrypt since its inception and find it to be a great tool to store sensitive data on my computer hard drive and my flash drives. The highlights? It’s free, open-source, works on multiple platforms, very lightweight (there’s even a portable app for it), and includes some of the best encryption methods available today.

TrueCrypt is a free open-source disk encryption software for Windows Vista/XP, Mac OS X, and Linux. Some of its main features include: Creating a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk, Encrypting an entire partition or storage device such as USB flash drive or hard drive and ability to Encrypt a partition or drive where Windows is installed (pre-boot authentication).
