Hi everyone, Antergos and general Linux newbie here.
Currently tinkering with Antergos on VM and planning to do a real install on my laptop in the near future.
During installing on VM, I’ve noticed that Antergos allows encryption of the hard drive when installing. I was interested in the feature and did a bit of searching and found that encryption could be done on different folders (is that the correct term?), such as /root and /home.
As a complete noob I have no idea what the difference is between the two.
Say in the future I plan to install Antergos completely on my laptop (i.e. no Windows, no dual boot) and I want to encrypt my entire hard drive, what should I be doing? I generally just want the drive to be encrypted so that no one can access it without my password, even when I lose the laptop.
