Windows 10: Is encrypting all my drives with Bitlocker necessary?
Is encrypting all my drives with Bitlocker necessary?
Is encrypting each and every one of my drives with BitLocker necessary? I highly doubt my PC will ever be swapped or anything. I wonder how many people even use the feature.
If you've enabled BitLocker, make sure you remember the recovery key. If you forgot both your computer password and the recovery key, you'll completely lose anything stored on your hard drive. So I think BitLocker is intended for commercial environment.
In my personal computer, I just use a folder protection software to secure my sensitive info, because not all the files on my hard drive are so important.
No. I personally have never encrypted and never will encrypt a whole drive. I do encrypt personal files.
Only you can answer that question. The largest business case for this is laptops, particularly those used in the banking and healthcare industry. Encrypting the drives is mandatory to protect customer/patient information in case the laptop is lost or stolen.
I don't really have any uber sensitive information. Mostly just games, Images, and other misc stuff. I guess I don't really need it.
If that's the case you don't need it.
I have several drives and encrypt my OS drive, two storage drives and my Virtual Machine drive.
I have two drives I use to audio editing and two more for video editing. Those are not encrypted.
The reason for encrypting my drives is in case my computer gets stolen. I use KeePass for my passwords, so that is not a worry. But I do keep my facebook password stored in my browser, as well as passwords for other sites. Since my backups are stored on the storage drives, they get encrypted, as well, along with the drive that holds my VM's, that have sensitive account information. And I keep an encrypted external drive in my safe deposit box.
So here is my question: If someone gets your computer, will they have access to information that could result in identity theft?
