Exclamation Kali Linux encryption

I installed my kali without encryption and I have modified it so much with trial and error, now its working correctly and I want to know if there is a way to encrypt it now without a fresh install. It seems from my searches it can only be done during the install unlike Windows OS.

If someone can help me this would be great!

Default Re: Kali Linux encryption

If you used something like TrueCrypt (or one of it's now-replacements), then you should be able to encrypt the HDD after the fact. As for built-in encryption...not sure.

The true crypt doesn't give that option, I've tried already, not sure why it not there. Kali Linux has a built in encryption but can only seem to do it during installation. I will install in on a new HDD and find a way to copy my data into the new HDD..

So after 3 days! I managed to install K linux with entire disk encryption.. (having issues with the partitioning config) You might aswell close this unless someone can now tell me how to copy all my data within a partition to the new HDD?
