Is there any way to fix the dreadfully slow boot time associated with having an encrypted drive? It takes two minutes for mt laptop to boot and while I appreciate the security is there a way to turn it down a little?

Its unusable as is. with truecrypt being found to be safer than was originally thought, im considering switching back[1]

thanks for making this software

You can reduce the number of hash iterations by using the PIM feature with a lower value by having a password of 20 or more characters.

Kind Regards.
