DiskCryptor is giving me the error: "Not enough space after partitions to install bootloader. Install bootloader to first HDD track?". Then after clicking YES, I get "Error code: 20" then upon clicking Okay it just returns to the main DiskCryptor screen without mounting or encrypting the C drive(containing Windows).

So can this be fixed? or what equivalent disc encryption software should be installed? Thanks

I don't know anything about DiskCryptor, but I will tell you that if you decide to encrypt your hard drive you need to have a good back up plan in place.  I can't tell you how many people I've had to tell that all of their data was lost due to a disk error that corrupted the encryption software.


You can use the old version of TrueCrypt until someone comes up with a replacement.


Depending on if/what version of Windows you are using BitLocker may be an option.
