Thanks again for all your input and ideas! I spent the weekend to try out various things and approaches: I still prefer to get the fully encrypted setup, only/max leaving the boot partition unencrypted.

Re: Newbie: Full disk encryption - as with TrueCrypt under Windows 7/10

No, it's hard-coded into the Ubuntu-Mint installer, one drive holds one encrypted Mint installation. That's not totally undesirable.

Any reason why you did not choose to encrypt during installation?
