    TrueCrypt was discontinued in mysterious circumstances. The code was taken forward by VeraCrypt. It is open source and some security vulnerabilities have been fixed since the TrueCrypt days. It's a great app for creating encrypted containers or encrypting whole drives. Backwards compatible with TrueCrypt. Truly excellent software.

    so
    An almost identical interface to TrueCrypt but added security that closes a security hole in TrueCrypt.

    Open source fork of TrueCrypt. And most important - it's still developed, unlike TrueCrypt.

    Truecrypt is no more. Try the more updated and secure VeraCrypt. Both of those are for making an encrypted container into which files are placed. Cryptomator is different: it encrypts file-by-file (makes an encrypted version of each file). This enables you to sync/backup encrypted versions of your files to the cloud, which the TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt approach doesn't. Cryptomator thus fulfills a different need than does TC/VC.

    AES Crypt is just an encryption program for a single file not for container or partitions like TrueCrypt.
