Windows 7: Encryption By User Advice Needed

Encryption By User Advice Needed


Does anyone know of a program that will encrypt the user directory on the fly?

I know about EFS, but I am doing 3 laptops, one runs Windows 7 Home Premium and the other 2 run Vista Home Premium, none of them have EFS.

So what I am looking to do, is find a program that will let me encrypt a users home directory but not something where it has to be manually encrypted/decrypted, looking for something similar to what EFS does where it will encrypt/decrypt on the fly.

Any help appreciated.

TrueCrypt is my first recommendation.

I use BoxCryptor with my dropbox account and keep an encrypted folder there. It works very good and once mounted, it's just drag and drop.
