encryption and filesystem, need help understanding
hey all i just figured out how to encrypt files in hardy heron, my question is will windows pc's and macs be able to receive and open these files with the given pass phrase ?
if i enter a password i keep closely guarded into an encrypted file to set as the pass phrase is it safe there? can any get my personal password from the file?
also what is a journaled file system and what does it do ?
lastly i saw an article in sofpedia talking about fully encrypting ubuntu is there a way to do this when i have already installed ubuntu? i dont want to re-install and loose all my hours of setting it up (also i want to encrypt so that when i send my laptop off for repair the repair men cant take a peak)
i hope you can answer my questions
