Good people,
I don't have any experience with encryption of drives, even after 15 years of programming! Shame on me, but I've had no need of it.
Does anyone here have any experience with it, and if so, which software do you prefer?
Are there any hardware considerations, and lastly, is it enough to encrypt a small portion?
I'm going to be encrypting my code, so it's not very big. (a few hundred MB of data)

See: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/02/government-watchdog-warrantless-laptop-searches-at-border-are-a-ok

Which made me think of what I have that is valuable - my code. I'm not necessarily worried about governments, of course. It's a matter of principle. I'm the guy that reads the manuals, and the warnings! Readme writers love me!

Thank you

EDIT: Currently having a look at TrueCrypt ( http://www.truecrypt.org/ )
