Btw anyone know whatever happened to TruCrypt? Back in the day it was claimed the encryption was so solid that if you got rid of an encrypted drive you needn't even bother erasing it. Was it replaced by something else?https://veracrypt.codeplex.com/
VeraCrypt also solves many vulnerabilities and security issues found in TrueCrypt. The following post describes some of the enhancements and corrections done: https://veracrypt.codeplex.com/discussions/569777#PostContent_1313325
