Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try Truecrypt – http://www.truecrypt.org/

Main Features:

* Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk.

* Encrypts an entire partition or storage device such as USB flash drive or hard drive.

* Encrypts a partition or drive where Windows is installed (pre-boot authentication).

* Encryption is automatic, real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent.

* Parallelization and pipelining allow data to be read and written as fast as if the drive was not encrypted.

* Provides plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces you to reveal the password:

Hidden volume (steganography) and hidden operating system.

* Encryption algorithms: AES-256, Serpent, and Twofish. Mode of operation: XTS.

    SafeHouse Explorer is another option. WHAT IS SAFEHOUSE EXPLORER?

    I've been using BitLocker for thumb drive encryption and it's been working well so far. You can also use PGP disk encryption.
