Can you use adobe with truecrypt

Are you able to use adobe with and encrypted file system using truecrypt? Below is taken from their site:

"Note: The issue described below does not affect you if you use TrueCrypt 5.1 or later and a non-cascade encryption algorithm (i.e., AES, Serpent, or Twofish).* The issue also does not affect you if you do not use system encryption (pre-boot authentication)."

So does this mean that after 5.1 this isn't an issue and you can use adobe with a system encrypted with truecrypt?

Hi DM2013, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Not knowing which Adobe program you are talking about (Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Shockwave Player, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe PDF Reader etc.) I can only use logics in answering you.

TrueCrypt supports three algorithms: AES, Serpent, and Twofish, and five different combinations of these algorithms: AES-Twofish, AES-Twofish-Serpent, Serpent-AES, Serpent-Twofish-AES and Twofish-Serpent.

Three main algorithms used alone are called non-cascaded, and the five combinations cascaded. Now a quote from your post:

Combining the information I gave above and what you posted (quote) gives you this answer: If you use non-cascaded algorithm, and if you do not use system encryption, the issue (?) does not affect you.
