    If i encrypt a MS DOS(Fat partition), is it going to stay encrypted on Windows PC. Is it going to ask for password to open the drive?

    Do you have a Windows PC? You will find out soon enough if you try it.

    I don't think it'll ask for a password. The PC doesn't recognize FileVault, so it might just tell you the disk is unreadable.
