    I stupidly purchased a Windows 8 computer. Before I go through the effort of rolling it back to Windows7, does anyone recommend an encryption program compatible for Windows 8?

    My computer has to be encrypted with whole disk encryption so that law enforcement or anyone else cannot get in.:cool:

    The current version of TruCrypt does not currently support Windows8.

    Don't rollback on Windows, the change to the new crappy 8 version is inevitable. Give it some time and TC will come out with a new Windows version.

    (I went through this last December. Changed to Windows 8, cursed the hell out of it, but now I'm getting used.)

    Windows 8 does take some getting used to, but after about a month of using it, I actually learned that I've come to like the OS.
