Sophos SafeGuard for Mac 5.5 is a powerful encryption tool

This is another reason to consider staying with Apple's built-in FileVault2, even if at the expense of some of the other functionality referenced. I gave up on both of the companies I reference.

Two issues with TrueCrypt, largely relevant if you use TimeMachine for backups:
1. It creates encrypted containers, not true full/whole disk encryption. From my recollection, this means that like the original FileVault, it is not compatible with TimeMachine. The new Lion encryption, because like PGP and WinMagic, is truly whole disk encryption, the encrypted HD file system is transparent to TimeMachine for backups.
2. If you want to encrypt a TimeMachine external backup HD, TrueCrypt is not supported there either, so you cannot create encrypted backup HD's. Again, this is supported by the built-in Lion encryption.
Something to consider.

I hope this saves someone pooping in their pants and from having to start from scratch.
