I've been thinking about TrueCrypting my hard drive on my MacBook. However, I've noticed there is only a 32-bit version of TrueCrypt for OS X.

Will installing this on a 64-bit operating system cause me to bog down my OS to run in 32-bit mode or will my computer function perfectly fine after using it?

Running x86 programs on your x64 OSX should not make your system run slower, although it might make the program run slower. There might be a way to encrypt disks using the baked in disk utility. Have you tried this? – Alex Waters Sep 2 '11 at 5:39
Well true crypt is on the fly encryption which means everything will be going through truecrypt. – user646655 Sep 2 '11 at 5:47
NVM. True crypt just came out with a 64bit version today. :) – user646655 Sep 2 '11 at 5:53
