    I have just realized that, despite what it claims twice in the documentation pages, FreeOTFE Explorer does *not* support encrypted device/partition.

    So... as far as I know there is no universal plug-and-play solution for encryption.

    You will need admin priviledges to access your data on someone else's computer.

    The only solution is to have a file container rather than a partition. I don't like it. It's so convenient to have the partition automatically mounted on Ubuntu. But if portability is really important it might be the solution for you.

    Have you considered any of the IronKey drives - e.g. IronKey Basic? (I don't work for them / don't get paid to ask that.)
