I have an external multimedia hard drive (1.36TB). I made 4 partitions of 350GB each. Then I shredded the free disc space of all the partitions.
Now I want to put Truecrypt on the disk. I can't put it on all 4 Partitions. If I put it on all 4 Partitions, I can't use the hard drive for watching TV or films. So I want to lock 3 partitions and leave one open.
I am worried that I won't get the full Truecrypt protection. Since one partition is open, you can just go to the computer, access the open partition, reformat the other three, then the password is gone and the you can run a file recovery program.
