How To: Protect your data with BitLocker Drive Encryption on Windows 7

Protect your data with BitLocker Drive Encryption on Windows 7

BitLocker. What is it? And what can it do for you? Well, it's a handy new feature built-in to Windows 7, and it can help protect all of your data from loss, theft, or hackers. It's the easiest way to make sure your documents and files are safe from the devil's hands.

Improved for Windows 7 and available in the Ultimate and Enterprise editions, BitLocker helps keep everything from documents to passwords safer by encrypting the entire drive that Windows and your data reside on. Once BitLocker is turned on, any file you save on that drive is encrypted automatically.

BitLocker To Go—a new feature of Windows 7—gives the lockdown treatment to easily-misplaced portable storage devices like USB flash drives and external hard drives.
