You can install Truecrypt on a USB-Stick and start it from there, so yes, it works.

If I need to protect files I zip them with 7z and add a 12 letter password... I wonder what your doing if you need it all to be encrypted :D

just warning about truecrypt, if you create a "container" to store your files in then be care full because someone can delete that "container" if they wanted to, i know because i created a dunmmy container and found that once i unmounted the container then it was possible to delete it.
