Mini Poll regarding Disk Encryption

I just want to make a poll, well, sort of, (I dont know how to do one using charts here) so I will practice that later or read the guide on how to. Sorry...

OK, how many of you out here do use full disk encryption?
And what encryption software do you use?
Do you use full disk or file encryption?

Thanks!

1) i don't
2) all i'm (somewhat) familiar with is TrueCrypt (though i have had a look at SafeHouse Explorer)
3) i would only create a "container" into which i would put any files i would want "protected"

Thanks La Luna for the guide.

I guess physical security matters also. If a notebook or PC is stored in a locked room with motion detection cameras and so forth, then I guess encryption wont matter as much.

My employer's computer enforces encrypted disks. At home, I use TrueCrypt containers.

Yes all computer hard drives are Bit Locker encrypted.

No identity or financial information, such as taxes (they are coming up you know), is stored on live systems that viruses malware and such could compromise. All such sensitive information is stored on multiple (at least 3) bit locked USB flash drives that are stored in multiple offsite locations.

Also only absolutely necessary hardcopy documents are kept and they are securely stored offsite.

Call me paranoid, but had a wakeup call last year.
Nothing like a wakeup call to create motivation.

Won't give details about work machine other than just to say that is encrypted too.
