Make new encrypted partition

Postby ElMugroso on Sat May 05, 2012 3:34 am

After installing Mint Lisa, all is OK.

I can make a new extra partition in the same or in another drive. I would like that new partition to be encrypted for Mint to access.

Can some one please provide a brief sequence? Can this be done to a USB external drive? To a USB stick?

Making the partition is no problem, but what formatting is best for that?

Thanks for any help.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Here's one way: http://www.hermann-uwe.de/blog/howto-di ... and-debian
Works for partitions on both internal and external drives. I use this for portable USB drives.
