Encrypt a portion of USB or Hard Drive to secure Sensitive Data

Imagine what would you would feel like if your personal data was accessed by someone you did not like to. Well it could be sensitive company data or pictures of your girlfriend about whom your parents dont know about. Data protection is a must when there are some files on your PC which you want to keep private and for your own access only. Here's a handy tool which will help you do that - TrueCrypt. It is a very powerful tool for data encryption, and you should be using it if your the kind a guy who wouldnt want to regret any privacy invasion.
Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk.

Encrypts an entire partition or storage device such as USB flash drive or hard drive.

Encrypts a partition or drive where Windows is installed
(pre-boot authentication).

Encryption is
automatic, real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent.

Provides two levels of
plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces you to reveal the password:

Hidden volume (steganography – more information may be found here).

2) No TrueCrypt volume can be identified (volumes cannot be distinguished from random data
