There are different ways of going about it, but I think your best option is using cryptkeeper. It is in the software manager. It works easy enough.

They are similar. Truecrypt usually is used to encrypt entire filesystems, while Cryptkeeper focuses on individual folders. Obviously Truecrypt is has much more broader applications, and is more feature full. Cryptkeeper is perhaps a bit easier to use. At least I think so. Once installed and running there is a little icon on your task bar. You can click it to create an encrypted folder, or mount an existing folder. Once mounted you can read and write to it just like any other folder. You simply unmount the folder when you are done.

Hi,
I'm using [commercial software] in Windows.
I forgot I guess I also found out about it in your site. I'm just contributing...

Well.. bad thing about it, the files are viewable in Ubuntu.

So that cryptkeeper is easy to use? I didn't try it yet but thanks a lot for the replies..
