What is DiskCryptor?
DiskCryptor is a free and open-source utility that offers encryption of all disk partitions, including the system partition. Originally conceived as a replacement for DriveCrypt Plus Pack and PGP Whole Disk Encryption (WDE), the project aims to create the best product in its category. Initially, DiskCryptor's encryption format was compatible with TrueCrypt because they encrypted data with the AES-256 algorithm in LRW mode. Starting with version 0.5, DiskCryptor relies on a different format that enables encrypting partitions with data on them. (TrueCrypt could only create empty volumes.)
