“Yes,” then Next.
First option, then Next.
It was, but we rectified this when we restored Windows boot program to the MBR. So, select “No.” Next.
This is fine. What will happen is that after this process is completed, pressing the Esc key at Truecrypt’s boot menu will drop you to Fedora’s boot menu. Because Fedora is also encrypted, being able to bypass Truecrypt’s boot menu to get to it does not compromise the integrity of the system’s physical security Next.
The default encryption algorithm is strong enough, but there are other options, if you feel otherwise. For this test system, I chose the default. Next.
Pick a strong passphrase. Next.
Follow the on-screen instructions, then Next.
Insert a blank CD-R in the optical drive, then click Next. After you’re done creating the Truecrypt Rescue Disk (TRD), you can transfer it to a USB stick, if you like that better.
If the TRD is created successfully, click Next.
For better encryption, choose a “Wipe Mode” from the dropdown menu. Next.
If you’ve followed all the steps as specified, there should be no problem here. Encrypt.
It took two hours for the encryption of my test system to complete. Note that the time it takes is a function of the size of the disk being encrypted, and the wipe mode you chose. The good thing here is that you can still be using the system while Truecrypt is completing the task. Otherwise, take a walk and come back after the estimated time to completion.
