I have been looking at various software to encrypt a portion of a network drive that will allow a user to access the encrypted data from multiple devices.
For example, I was experimenting with the Free Truecyrpt which is very good. However when I set a portion of the network drive to be encrypted this worked fine. However when I Tried to mount the encrypted volume from another PC, it of course said that the file is in use.
Therefore I conclude with Truecrypt it is not possible to mount the encrypted volume from multiple devices at the same time.
However I have been looking at others such as PGP (now Symantec) Whole disk encryption software (which comes with file /folder encryption) and I am unable to establish at this time if it will support multiple simultaneous access.
Reading some of the blurb of Winmagic I got the impression it does support this.
But would be great if someone who has used this could confirm and how well it works (can't download a demo of this and need to finish my report by the end of long weekend).
