I don't want to do disk encryption, I want to do file encryption.
GPG is more easily available than TrueCrypt and I care for a simple
scenario where I will be able to decrypt one or more files with minimal
setup. I can carry the Win32 GPG binaries inside the hard drive.
TrueCrypt would provide a more transparent and automated solution but
the cost would be simplicity.
