Forgive me if this is the wrong subforum.
Okay, so here is how I am set up currently:
-Windows 8 Pro
-1TB RAID array (4 x random extra laptop drives that the smallest happens to be 250GB).
-Windows XP Pro
-60 GB HDD
-Windows 8 pro
-320 GB HDD
-Windows Vista Business
I know how to set them all up to be able to access the RAID array as a a network drive, so that is not an issue. Also the drives rad and write faster than the network should be able to access (Wireless N, so 150Mbps connection to sister and mothers computer and Wireless G to the work laptop).
MY question is, if I use a portable Truecrypt software to encrypt some of the files, will I just have to place it on the network drive and launch it from there, or am I going to have to install it on every computer that needs to access the encrypted files? (I really should know this, but I don't). Also, will the many OSes make a difference? Will the portable launch from for the Linux machine, or am I going to have to install to that one and use portable for the windows machines?
