FreeOTFE 2.0 is now available (updated from 1.6):

Site: http://www.freeotfe.org/

Download: http://www.freeotfe.org/downloads/FreeOTFE_2_00.zip

Have found this superior to TrueCrypt, especially in on-the-fly encryption/decryption speed. Ran both through some Sandra file system benchmarking, and FreeOTFE was *dramatically* faster than TrueCrypt.

FWIW, "FreeOTFE" is now at v3.0, not v2 :)

Also - there's FreeOTFE Explorer v3.00, a separate program which doesn't need drivers.

This makes FreeOTFE truely portable unlike Truecrypt as you don't need administrator rights to use it!

Please could we include a new entry for this one as well?

The entry for truecrypt isn't right:

http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=199

states: "Stealth [?]: Yes" - but actually writes "LEGACY_TRUECRYPT" driver settings to the registry, and doens't clean them up afterwards -

Also the one for FreeOTFE:

http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=698

has: "Dependencies: Administrator rights" but with FreeOTFE Explorer, you don't need administrator rights (that's it's whole point!)

There are differences between FreeOTFE and FreeOTFE Explorer :!:
(Operation, partition support, filesystem support)

Think I found a way around the annoying "do you want to enable portable mode" prompt -- add this to command line parameters:
Code:
/portable on /noexit

You can also add "/silent" if the progress bar annoys you:
Code:
/portable on /noexit /silent

Pointing out the obvious, but you can disable this prompt by just turning it off in the options:

  • "View | Options..."
  • "Advanced" tab
  • Click the "Autostart portable mode if FreeOTFE drivers not installed/running"
