TrueCrypt ceased development in 2014. I wouldn't trust it as far as I
could throw it today.

i think you can also use it to encript only a flash drive too.
even if they steal your computer they wouldn't be able to get into it. even if they removed the drive and put it on another computer it would all be unaccessible.
again you would only have to remember one password to un encript the drive.
but the password would be entered before windows loads, without speech.
i don't know if you would have speech to use a encripted flash drive.

Hi,

Another thing I would quickly add on this subject, any IT security person will tell you that storing all your passwords in one file be it on your hard drive or a separate thumb drive is probably the least safe option, since if a hacker wants this information its fairly easy to get and its all in one place with absolutely no security , if you store it on an external hard drive/flash drive and worst case situation you get burgled potentially if they steal your external drive or whatever your password is on, again you've given them everything in one neat little file that they don't even need a password to access.

Steve:

Perhaps I'm old and not as informed as I should be, but my problem with these password manager programs is that if someone somehow gets your credentials, they will suddenly have access to all of your passwords.

If I'm in error about this, please let me know.

KeePass, LastPass, and my particular favorite, 1Password.
