Encryption
« on: September 20, 2019, 03:24:45 pm »
During the installation of Peppermint 10, I wanted to encrypt the system, but could not tick the appropriate box. Is it possible to encrypt the system afterwards?

Do you mean just an encrypted home folder/partition, encrypted home and swap, or full disk encryption ?

Thank you for your reaction. On the HD is also Windows installed, so I guess it is about encrypt: home folder/partition, encrypted home and swap,as you mentioned.
I suppose this is what happens by encryption while installing Peppermint.

Windows by default cannot read your Peppermint Partition anyway, unless you ask it to as in command it to, though I do not know the necessary command and would not want it to either. As a thought if you don't mind me asking? Why do you need Peppermint encrypted?  :)
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)
