35 Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption

Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption, only available in Windows Vista Ultimate, helps secure your data and documents in case your computer is lost or stolen. By encrypting the entire Windows volume, BitLocker Drive Encryption ensures no one can break into Windows and retrieve user information and documents.

This feature is incredibly valuable if you store sensitive data on your computer, such as business and customer data or personal banking information, especially on laptops, which can be easily stolen or misplaced.

Here's how to access the Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption settings:

  1. Open the Start menu.
  2. Click Control Panel.
  3. Double-click the BitLocker Drive Encryption icon.
