Is there a way to fully encrypt UEFI GPT non-system drives?

I'd like to use the open source successor of TrueCrypt VeraCrypt.

Also I'm interested in whether it also works for two drives that were virtually merged into a single drive.

  • It also worked for 2 merged GPT drives.

  • Note that it can encrypt GPT Volumes (partitions), as kavsrf stated, but not entire GPT drives. The difference is that it will still be obvious that you have a partition there, although it will show as "RAW".

1.18 supports UEFI for boot volume

It is better to use VeraCrypt 1.20B2 from sourceforge

Ordinary data volumes on GPT disks work also.
