This question already has an answer here:
Before anything I have say that I have no experience with cryptography, at all. Anyway, I have a laptop with Windows 10 and an SSD. I don't want to use BitLocker since I don't trust Microsoft in this matter.
I've read that TrueCrypt 7.1a is still safe despite being abandoned by the developers, but everything I've read was from about 2 years ago, so I don't know if it still is a good alternative.
I'm also considering VeraCrypt, but some people say isn't safe because it wasn't audited yet. So, what are some good and reliable open source alternatives to encrypt my system?
