Is a lot better in my opinion, more encryption methods available for stronger 
keys, also traveler mode so you don't have to install to use the software.

The extra security of hidden volumes is also a brilliant feature.

Very nice app.

Thx for the hint, I always find your download picks interesting! 
What is the difference between truecrypt and Windows EFS, except the more
obvious fact that WinEFS doesn't run on linux?
