Re: Proper way to dualboot LM 17.2 + Win8?

Re: What is the Mint 17.2 encryption method?

Also, I am planning to install a clean LM to my drive alongside Win8 - there is an "Overwrite empty disk space" option which from what I've read does not allow you to recover files even if they are deleted.

What is the Mint 17.2 encryption method?

I see after long time of not using Mint, during the installation of 17.2 there are options to encrypt full disk and then later on /home/ directories. What does this encryption do and what method of encryption is used?
