    I'm not sure that that means. The actual root folder is /, which is the equivalent of C:\ in Windows. Packages don't normally go there, however, but usually in /usr/bin, usr/sbin, usr/local/bin, or somewhere like that. Some packages are installed in /opt, but that's not as common. I'm not familiar with that package, so I can't be more specific. If you want to extract archives into any of those folders, you have to be root.

    A quick Google search indicates that crosscrypt is a Windows-only application, which won't run under Linux. I may have missed something, but if it is Windows, you need to look elsewhere. There are Linux encryption tools available.
