    I had no idea they didn't have support for Windows 8. I've been using it on Windows 8 since 8 came out without any trouble. I don't encrypt entire drives, just a dedicated container.

    Ah thanks for that. I just looked on the Truecrypt site and the list of supported operating systems still only goes up to Windows 7.

    It's good to know that the encrypted containers work, but I think I would be pretty cautious about encrypting whole drives.

    I never encrypt whole drives. I like encrypted containers as they are easy to back up.

    Hi there
    Windows 8 Enterprise can be downloaded as a trial or if you are a TechNet subscriber it's also available.

    I use the windows to GO feature so W8 enterprise is the one that works for me.

    People are trying to see if W8 Pro can be "fixed" to create a windows to go system. W8 pro has advantages over W8 Home if you use multiple languages. I might be wrong but I don't think you can add different display languages to windows 8 HOME (note keyboards are another issue).

    Cheers

    Only $40 makes the choice for PRO every time since XP PRO.
    It was the tightest penny-pincher that made believers of my family & friends when his identity was stolen using XP home version.
    $40 or a lot more...
