View Full Version : [ubuntu] Truecrypt portable file system for windows & Hardy

March 8th, 2009, 03:09 AM
Hello all,
'Been working with PortableApps on a usb drive, using portable versions of Truecrypt, Firefox, Office. I would like to be able to use the truecrypt volume with my windows (xp) machine at work and my Hardy machine at home. Is there a file system selection that would work well with both?

'Very much appreciate your thoughts.

Each will read and write NTFS and FAT32. Are you using a Truecrypt partition or file? Drivers for Linux and Windows are availabe.

BlueRidge! G'Morning!

Thank You! I had hoped it could read NTFS, 'cause I'm pretty sure that's what xp would be using at work. All threads I'd seen were not using portable for both. I'm using a file, rather than partition & hoped I could read NTFS on the home linux box (with Wine).

Only recently have the wine instructions been easy enough for a noob, and that has been very cool. All the portable apps that I've seen that would switch platforms have been for Windoze, This should allow both to work fine.

I appreciate your kind help.

with ntfs-3g you can read/write to ntfs drives from linux.
