The situation is I got a 16G thumb drive with 3 partitions. One of them is a bootable kali distro, the other is just FAT32 ''free for all'' partition and the last one I want to be encrypted for important stuff. I'm looking for a freeware solution that wont mess up my ability to boot from that partition.

Thanks

Oh and I'm running windows 10 right now but probably will be using all different kinds of computers and OSs in the foreseeable future.

I would just use folder encryption. I think the truecrypt descendants disk encryption ask for a boot password and that might mess with grub.

How many persons have you hacked with that Kali?

Do you mean windows folder encryption within the file system? I could do that and it never crossed my mind to be honest, i'm gonna look into it. My only experience with encrypting drives is the software that came with my Western Digital Traveler.

I'm definitely going to need strong encryption I will be using this in public libraries. If it gets swiped which is probably going to happen it is going to end up in the hands of a bored IT student eventually or worse yet a sleuth fraudster. People will pluck them out of the machines while the person using it went to the washroom or went to retrieve something from the inkjet. I've seen homeless selling bags full of them on the street.

I haven't even gotten started with kali yet I'm a novice. I chose it because it had allot of tools. I probably should'f started on Damn Small linux but it looked too good to pass up.
