Comment: Why not encrypt only the files you need secured? (Score -1) 446

Why encrypt the whole disk when you can reduce the performance loss by only encrypting a portion of the disk. Better yet, choose a single folder and encrypt it and all the sub folders beneath it. Only store your data in those folders. This way your swap file isn't affected and performance is maintained. Works for me!
