Encrypting for Dropbox

Update 05/28/2014 - TrueCrypt is now defunct

I've highlighted the FREE option. If you click the Download Now button, you get the Windows version.

Installing the Mac or Ubuntulinux versions requires a bit of work. I'm sure it's not impossible, but at this point, TrueCrypt.org remains my favorite cross-platform, free open source solution and recommendation.
