Bitlocker on Vista – speed, performance, review

Filed under: general, security — chrisweber @ 12:51 pm

Been running 64 bit Vista for a few weeks now, my reliability score’s pretty low (lots of red-balls and app crashes).  But things overall seem pretty normal and fast.  Running on a Thinkpad T61.

I didn’t prepare for Bitlocker though, only creating a single huge partition.  Luckily the Bitlocker Drive Preparatin Tool handles this.  As I’m writing it just finished preparation – it took some free space from C: and created an S: partition of 1.5gb which will be the active partition.  Hopefully I’ll reboot and things will work.

I’m interested in Bitlocker’s affect on speed and performance.  So I’ve created a few informal tests to time things, though I expect the difference to be low – as the product team says, it’s in the single digit percentages.
