Anybody used TrueCrypt?

After having a bad experience with LockDir by KakaSoft (hmmm..), Ive been looking into encryption for my files on my USB drive.

Alot of people kiss the feet of TrueCrypt, and from the description, i can see why.

However, Ive got one problem.

I mainly use my USB drive for school, quite a chunk for investigative hacking, but nothing malicious at all.

So, if i create a truecrypt partition, would i be able to access it without administrative priveledges?

If not, does anyone know of an alternative in which i can?

Ive read about TrueCrypts "traveler mode", but it wasnt a very clear description.

Thanks,

If admin hasn't installed and you're not an admin then no truecrypt.

There is however Rohos, a freeware program that does not require admin rights. However it is closed source so there's no way to verify it's integrity.
