You can check with your motherboard manufacturer to see if you have a TPM, or you can just attempt to go straight to Step 3.

Wouldn't simply dragging those "Bitlocked" files on to a HD formatted for FAT32 make them readily accessible??

What are the advantages of using Bitlocker over Truecrypt?

I know of one disadvantage: The price of Win 7 Ultimate vs. Home Premium

Second. OSX Lion comes with full-disk encryption and Lion is a thirty dollar upgrade from SnoLeo.

Truecrypt works well on nearly any platform. Sometimes it's rebranded in Linux repositories, but it's exactly the same.

I tried Bitlocker when Win 7 was still RC. It worked pretty well. Just not "130 bucks to Redmond-well."

Also Fedora Linux has FDE. Ubuntu can be set up as such, but you have to know what you're doing.

The only reason you would get Ultimate is A) need some type of encryption or B) needed the language support. However, if you do manage to snag Ultimate for a good price, then that's another possibility.

My question is this an internal hd is encrypted and removed and put in on another system as an additional drive on another system can the files be accessed?

avatar

MrBlueCheese

The files cannot be accessed even if that happened. However, the strength of the encryption would be more if the encryption was set up on a TPM computer versus a non-TPM computer.

The cool thing about BitLocker is that you can encrypt external storage devices.

Worried about your backups being taken? Have a friend who has Bitlocker? Ask them polietly to encrypt the backup drive. It is definately worth encrypting those devices.
