file manager and encrypted external USB drive?

I must use encryption on external storage devices; currently TrueCrypt, but others are acceptable. In theory the use of cloud storage should eliminate my need for external devices entirely but, s*** happens.

Can I encrypt an external drive in file manager using the Chrome OS? Is this worthy of attention; or a non-issue?

I have tried truecrypt (TrueCrypt - Downloads) and USB Security(Flash Drive Security: Secure Flash Drive/USB Drive with Password on Windows 8/7/xp). there are all great, truecrypt is opensource freeware; USB Security supports to encrypt part or whole of the external drive; you can view your encrypted data on any other computers without to install the encryption software. only type the password to access the encrypted external drive. good luck.
