Google Drive is a great way to store tons of different kinds of files in the cloud. It is good for business as files are stored online and are accessible from any computer anywhere. While this is great, it can lead to security violations. Sometimes there is sensitive information you do not want anyone to read. The best method is to encrypt these files so only someone with a valid password can access them. There is where TrueCrypt comes in. TrueCrypt allows you to create a container, i.e. a special folder, where you can store any type of file. TrueCrypt seals this folder and encrypts it so a password is required to access. Google Drive allows you to upload TrueCrypt files to their system, however without some tinkering, you will run into a problem.
