Hi Chad,

There is a beta version of the TrueCrypt 5.1a port out there.  See:

I tried it in a VMware virtual machine a couple of months ago and it
hung pretty consistently when copying files into the container.  It's
entirely possible that the problem was related to the virtual
environment, so YMMV.

What VMWare version were you using and what OS and version hosted the VM?

I only ask as I have been searching for this myself.

Currently, I am using a commercial product under Linux and Windoes called BestCrypt by Jetico (http://www.jetico.com).

I have VMware installed currently under Windoes Vista. VMware version is 6.0.4-93057. I haven't had any issues thus far running a number of FreeBSD guest OSes.

If your version is less than what I'm running, I would be willing to install and test.
