Thank you for all of your answers! From what you answered and what
I've been reading, it seems I have just one way to go (considering
what I want to achieve, especially dual-boot):

) - open source, free.
Available in binary form, does not require kernel modules, works on more
than bestcrypt, I guess.
Works on both Windows and Linux, is powerful and featureful. I think
I'm going to use it to encrypt my personal files (D:) partition.
Maybe encrypting my home partition is not really necessary. I'm going
to search how I can add extra security to my browser stored passwords,
With both you can create large encrypted files which can be formatted to
different file systems that can be mounted where you want.
VeraCrypt supports encrypting entire partitions too.
I don't know if working with 100-200 GB files is
feasible, but a few 10 GBs
not a problem.
According to what I've been reading, performance penalty is almost negligible.
And according to VeraCrypt's own documentation
), "Partitions/drives may be
better as regards performance" (when compared to File containers).

If you used full disk encryption, you could maybe reduce the problem
by just finding file systems that can be used on both OS's.
That could end up being native MS NTFS or
EXTn with a windows driver.
How life is... less than a week ago, he was alive and answered a doubt
of mine. Now, I can't talk to him... RIP John Andersen...
But if I understood him well, by "full disk encryption" he meant what
VeraCrypt calls "partition volume". That is exactly what I'm looking

There is nothing which comes with the system. veracrypt
) would fit the bill if you can
find a filesystem that works on both sides.
It's available on both Windows and Linux (and Mac). The main trouble is
chosing a file system which works well on both sides.
I'm going to use VeraCrypt + NTFS.
NTFS - Supported by Linux but not on the same level as
support on Windows.
I've been using NTFS on Linux without problems since I started using
Linux (by 2008, good times... Brazilian's Kurumin Linux based on
Debian 4.0 etch).
Maybe because I'm the only user of the computer and I set the NTFS
permission mask in a way that it ends up like 777...
Workaround: Set up a file server and put your personal
Encrypt the files in the file server. Use NFS or SMB to access them.
Advantage: If you set up a VPN, you can access your files worldwide and
Interesting and ingenious solution, but I want something more simple...

exfat. supported via fuse, drivers on packman.
That filesystem is new to me. I need to search...
