Hi,

I just tried encrypting a Partition twice using two methods & it did so with no problem but is it really more secure ?

I used "Folder Lock" software to create a container & put the entire partition data in it.

Then I encrypted that partition using Windows BitLocker with a different password & it it all went smooth.

Then I tried to decrypt both of them to make sure that I do get all my data back & I did.

Thus this was a case of encrypting an encrypted container which made me think, is it more secure if I used two different password for each encryption ?

Need opinions please.

Thanks

Sure, but once you decrypt it, it's still as vulnerable as anything to a side channel attack or whatnot.
