Unfortunately, BestCrypt Volume Encryption is a Windows-only software. So if you want to encrypt entire volumes of your system, you can't . You will only be able to encrypt the BootCamp one and you won't be able to access the data from inside Mac or Linux.

You can use BestCrypt Container Encryption instead. BestCrypt Container Encryption is available for Windows, Mac and Linux and allow creating encrypted file-storages (containers). Use passwords, key files or outer keyblock to access the data inside the container. Mounted (open) container are virtual drives that appear as normal hardware on your system. Containers (.jbc) files can be tranfered on removable media, stored in clouds or sent over e-mail. You can use our free BCTraveller tool to mount containers on systems with no BestCrypt installed.

Multiboot support?

OK. So I Posted this in MAC forums because it is Mac Hardware. I am triple booting Linux/Windows/Mac on My macbook. OS's are on SSD and storage and documents are stored on a HDD. I have included the Linux fdisk-l and parted -l output below. I work in health care network administration so I have some sensitive stuff on my machine. The setup is Bootcamp for windows RE-find manages boot. Mac is native. Please tell me if I can get away with encrypting using Bestcrypt
