Hello everyone,

First, this is my situation, my laptop has two NTFS partitions (one for Win7/Programs and the other one for Data) and two Ext4 partitions (one for / and one for /Home).

I'd like to encrypt the [Data] NTFS partition and be able to access it from both Win7 and Ubuntu 11.04 (both 64 bit).

I'd like to know what your recommendations are in this scenario (both paid and free).

Thanks.

TrueCrypt is the only disk encryption method that I know of that will work on both OSes.

You can use LUKS and FreeOTFE:
