comment Is diskcryptor really secure?
The developers have abandoned the project, but that doesn't mean that TC is not secure. The audit has finished it first phase and it shows only minor flaws: istruecryptauditedyet.com

comment Why do we ask for a user's existing password when changing their password?
Regarding the last part of the question, my university uses a web application for the profs to assign the grades, and when you want to enter or submit grades, your password is requested. So yes, it does happen that the password is requested for other sensitve tasks.
