Just use version 7.1a. If it is good enough for Edward Snowden, it is good enough for us. That was the last, final version which was not compromise in any way.

Yeah, it should be that version that seems to be not altered but however, it would be a good idea digging a bit deeper and use even more non-recent versions. And to be honest, it makes 0 sense using anything other than TrueCrypt because if you think you are more secure with alternatives then, dream on, especially for encryption, you can use the most secure encryption method in the world, if your password is like 12345678901011121314151617181920.... you can't blame anyone for own stupidity and weakening the functionality that depends on it.

You will always risk getting your shit decrypted, no matter what you use to encrypt it. TrueCrypt's encryption is secure and undefeated. It's good enough to hide your fap videos. You need to have some serious shit going on, if anyone with proper hardware wants to technically decrypt your physical medias and don't think it is the easiest and fastest thing already for any government, TrueCrypt is hard to decrypt if used correctly and it takes a while making progress.

No matter what you use, closed source, open source, private source and custom builds, no matter what features are promised and how much software says it can do for you regarding privacy and security, if there are technical reasons or incompatibilities with TrueCrypt 7.1a and below, that are the only reasons to not use it anymore. But only my opinion. I also can't see any real alternative to it.

Axcrypt or DiskCryptor, or another Open Source solution.

In principle Open Source is the best guarantee that you will get your data back in case of a disaster.

(a tad more important than terrorists stumbling over evil plans for santa).

Not quite sure how this works ?, it's encryption software, so no-one but yourself should be able to recover it, that's the reason behind the app!.

What I think you mean, is because it's OS, more devs can trawl the source code and potentially spot bugs / back doors / loop holes which could have been coded by another dev in a fork of the app.

Edit: I use Axcrypt.

About the encryption part, you are right. And your second option is good thinking - in this case not mine.

When using Open Source, you can expect some help for eternity. For example when the encrypted stuff has to be opened 30 years from now. In case of a proprietary program, it may have been sold and gone belly up by then.

Use Rohos Mini Drive. It is freeware, very simple interface. Designed to create encrypted volumes on USB flash drives, but, it is possible to encrypt hard drive as well. Find this loophole! In case of damaging, disk restore function is available.

In addition there is a small application, Rohos Disk Browser, that can work without administrative rights, can create non-limited volumes and create disks inside media files. It can create real hidden partitions, where another applications can not have access. And even Windows can not format it!

Rohos Mini drive can hide user profile in Skype, Chrome and Mozilla firefox. So, your web history and passwords became protected.

Don't use Symantec, it is extremely likely backdoored.

I'd probably keep using TrueCrypt or something at the very least that is Open Source if that is a concern.
