We use Bitlocker at work. I don't like it and of course I don't trust
Microsoft. If you run into disk errors Bitlocker can be a major pain.
If you go to alternativeto.net/software/truecrypt, there are a few
alternatives to TrueCrypt but none of them come anywhere near TrueCrypt in
Personally I'll be sad if there's no more TrueCrypt for Windows as I use it
regularly on one of my boxes.
