I need a software to encrypt drives like USB pens, disc drives, ... to securely store the data. But most of the software I've found to encrypt and decrypt drives is OS dependent.

For example Windows BitLocker encrypted drives can't be decrypted on Linux or Android without additional software or tweaks.

What I need is a software that can encrypt a drive that could be decrypted by Windows, Linux or Android. In other words that is cross-platform compatible.

What encryption software do you recommend? Do you have any tool that you've been using and recommend?

    Have you looked at encrypted USB drives. They perform encryption/decryption on the USB drive and not in the OS. – Neil Smithline Sep 14 '15 at 18:31
  • Truecrypt was the most cross-platform option. I haven't used any of the forks to see if the compatibility is being maintained. – Zoredache Sep 14 '15 at 19:34

    If you want a truly cross platform solution - look at getting a hardware solution. – KingJohnno Sep 14 '15 at 21:09
