Re:what is the solution for journalled file system

It is better to encrypt your<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/swap and<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/home partitions. Then, whether data is present or deleted, doesn't matter, it is just a random jumble of bits.

One distro that makes installing an encrypted file system super easy, is Mandriva. The diskdrake utility (in expert mode) can easily create encrypted file systems.
