I need to encrypt a partition, truecrypt could use keyfiles, (images and other) Is there any other encryption tool with GUI which can encrypt entire partitions and not only files/folders?


Truecrypt's advice on this makes sense: use the native FDE that came with your operating system, i.e.

  • Bitlocker on Windows
  • FileVault on OSX
  • whatever your distro suggests (typically Encrypted LVM) on Linux.

(This will not necessarily be a good fit for everyone, but without more details of an individual requirement, it's the best advice you can reasonably give.)

  • Yes, I forgot to mention I use LMDE (Linux Mint Debian) – S.I.Tsaklidis Jun 11 '14 at 12:57
  • A quick google suggests that dmcrypt is included in Debian Testing, and hence in LMDE as well. – Graham Hill Jun 12 '14 at 12:07
  • yes, I found this, but there is no GUI so it is hard to use for my sister. – S.I.Tsaklidis Jun 12 '14 at 13:04
