I recommend Disk Cryptor. It is free and works well. I used it on some PCs and servers for years. https://diskcryptor.net/wiki/Main_Page

We use Sophos Safeguard in our environment and it works very well.

But on some standalone clients I've used DiskCryptor and that works quite well.

Hi Nattygreg,

Truecrypt has now been deemed as insecure even by the group who made it. I would strongly advise against it.
