And here is how I would use it to encrypt something on linux. This should then be readable on windows (which I cannot test): xmodulo.com/2013/09/…

And isn't there any problem with running portable 7zip with restricted privileges?

But I don't know if truecrypt is installed on the target system. And In don't think that I can execute the portable version since this seems to require admin privileges.

Will I be able to run this without admin privileges? Isn't it possible to encrypt it in such a way that windows standard utilities can open it? What's about using the linux command zip -r -P "mypassword" myfiles.zip myfiles? Will I be able to decrypt this? I don't have a windows system to test!

comment Connect a ssd externally such that hdparm is fully supported
So I should get an usb adapter which supports "SAT"? However what has this to do with SCSI? Is it automatically supported if I go with an sata to esata adapter?

comment HDPARM Keeps giving Input/Output Error
@Glad: Did you check if the drive was frozen? I figured out from the ata specs that it should not be frozen. There are some tricks to get it to a unfrozen state such doing a suspend to RAM and waking it up. Then my I/O error dissappeared but the master password didn't work...

I didn't find an option to do this in the BIOS, there you can only set the user hdd password and you can set the option that typing in the master password invokes a secure erase instead of unlocking the ssd. However I don't know the master password which DELL has set up so I cannot test if this works. Thus I just want to overwrite the master password.
