I was checking the "Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps" thread out and noticed some encryption programs. I've never used one before but I wouldn't mind checking one out, is Truecrypt something a noob to encryption like me should use?

It is probably one of the most widely used and highly spoke of encryption tools out there.

Having said that. You will get out of it what you put into it. Meaning, read, understand and follow the instructions. You should have no problem.

My suggestion is to create some practice documents to encrypt first. Should you make a mistake then nothing is lost.
