Encrypt drives

Post by DavidL » 2006/09/27 15:23:16

I am looking to encrypt 400 gb external usb drives. Is there an easy way to do that? These drives will replace our tape backup system and will be going off site and I want to encrypt the data so that if they are stolen or misplaced the data will remain secure.

You're using 400Gb hard disks as backup media? Well, I don't think that I would do that. But, he's an article on Tom's Hardware about encrypting Linux drives. Good luck with that.
