I already have that program installed but, as far as I can determine, it does not offer the functionality of re-formatting an external drive to several different file formats of the user's choice as well as encrypting the whole drive, if the user so chooses, as does the Gnome Disk Utility.
At least I was unable to figure out how to do that.
If I am wrong, please correct me and please point me to a "User Manual" which will give me instructions.
Thank you for writing to me.
The tool does not create, delete or move around partitions.
The tool also does not create file systems on "naked" partitions.
The tool creates encrypted volumes in already existing partitions and it also give a user a choice of what file system to be used in the encrypted volume. The list of file systems is read from installed file system creation binaries.
If you already have a partition you want to create an encrypted volume and you want to create an encrypted volume in that already existing partition,then it can do so and this is how to do that.
1. start it up
2. click "create" on the menu bar
3. click "encrypted container in a partition"
A dialog box will show with a list of "non system partitions" if you start it up from a normal user account, your external drive should be on the list.
4. double click your external drive and two dialog box boxes will show up, follow their instructions and you will see a dialog box that will give you options for the following things:
1. a password to use to access the volume
2. the type of volume to create, options are "luks" and "plain"
3. file system to create in an encrypted volume, the list of file systems is read from installed file system utilities.
4 random number generator to use, you should go with the default here.
This dialog box has a title "create new volume".
