Okay... So I seem to be having a lot of issues here and hope someone here can assist with out being condescending as are users on other forums.
I have been looking for a solution to 1. encrypt my thumb drives and my external drive with AES or AES+twofish.
I tried encrypting my thumb drive the other evening with Veracrypt and it succeeded in finishing but kept telling me my password wasn't accurate. I did it again, making sure to watch everything I typed and still the same thing when I tried to access the drive.
I tried it under ntfs and fat. Windows and Mac. Same thing over and over. Has anyone seen this happen? I know for a fact the password was put in right all 5/6 times I encrypted these two different thumb drives.
- Once encrypted, if I can get this to work, will it work on both MAC and PC computers? That is something I am looking for in an encrypted thumb drive. OR do I just have to buy one off line with the numeric pad already built into it for security?
- Is there a simpler tool WITH A GUI not "command line" that I can use to encrypt these devices?
- Is there a GUI tool that I can use to encrypt my external drive on the fly without having to reimage the drive?
I have tried bit locker to go and it works fine on my MAC running parallels with windows 10. However the MAC will not read the drive. I have tried to use the software on my mac that "claims" you can view bit locker to go on your mac but it doesn't
Any help would be appreciated. I just tried the symantec end point encryption on my thumb drive that was imaged on the Windows box. It works beautifully on the Windows side but as soon as I try to use it on the MAC side it sais it can't be read.
There has to be a simpler way of getting this to work... lol
