UsbCryptFormat is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the encryption of USB flash drives or external hard drives. It allows the user to reformat a USB flash drive, an SD card, or an external hard drive with an encrypted filesystem very easily and without the danger of destroying data on an internal hard drive because of incautious handling of device names. So it is usable even for a layperson.

Release Notes: Better usability and GUI: improved titles and dialogs. Now 100% graphical: no opening the terminal for output anymore. Works better with Unity Desktop (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS).
Release Notes: This release uses the GUI tool Zenity instead of XDialog. This means it will work for newer Ubuntu versions, which don't include XDialog anymore.
Release Notes: This release deletes old data faster. If you choose not to have the time to overwrite all old data, it will prevent the system from trying to mount the old partition(s) while formatting the device with the new encrypted filesystem.
Release Notes: This release will call "udevadm info" instead of deprecated "udevinfo", and should now work with Ubuntu 9.x and later.
