    ISO file disk

    I just purchased 1TB external drive with my brother. I wan to ensure that he doesn't steal my part of the drive, so I was wondering if could make an ISO file 500 GB in size and mount it as a filesystem in ubuntu?

    truecrypt is a tool to create and use encrypted "volumes" (you can think of them as folders or archives).

    you won't find it in the repos (the are legal issues with exporting encryption systems), but you can get it from:
    http://www.truecrypt.org/
    and install it via this guide:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/truecrypt-...on-ubuntu-7.10

    the howto is a little old but shoudl get you through.
