    good luck, this is an illusion to make you feel sale , anything can be hacked….anything , no matter what security measure you use, it was created by someone so they have a key to the backdoor, any security software can be accessed by its creators, they always have a backdoor key dont be foolish

    I’m looking for a tutorial vid explaining how to use/set up Samsung 850 ( and also 850 pro) ssd hardware level encryption combined with VeraCrypt, I bought windows 10 pro wanting the Bitlocker then discovered my laptop doesn’t have a TPM, then after already loading important data onto the ssd, I learn that to use the ssd’s encryption capability will wipe the drive in the process? Also can’t find a proper tutorial on how to use the Samsung ssd encryption anyway…so annoyed

    My laptop with TPM 2.0 enabled and it requires me to enter the bitlocker PIN still lets me access the 2nd partition so, how is this full disk encryption? Should it be called Full Partition Encryption?

    We implemented dual bootup for our employees. The issue is when they switch from ubunto to windows, they are asked for bitlocker key. And we dont want to give them the pwd for bitlocker for security reasons.

    How can we have a dual boot and also keep the drive encrypted and also allow our employees to switch between both partitions

    In windows GUi it shows as not encrypted but using manage-bde c: off or what ever it is then shows that it is decrypting.

    Stupid for the GUI not able to see the command prompt version of the drive as being encrypted.

    Microsoft needs to up their game….. so currently decrypting at command prompt so I can re -encrypt it within windows GUI.
