Bitlocker setup process almost complete

Filed under: general, security — chrisweber @ 3:04 pm

Okay it’s on, I ran the preparation tool fine, rebooted, turned Bitlocker on (the TPM was already on via the BIOS).  The TPM ownership password was set during TPM initialization, which I might change later, but there’s not much point now.  I set the PIN I’ll use to boot up the computer, and copied the Recovery Key to a USB drive.  The Recovery Key is useful if the computer has problems and I need to move the drive to a new machine.

All in all, so far it’s smooth.  The drive is currently encrypting which takes a while – at about 11% one hour later.  I have a 7200 rpm 200 GB drive.  Even unallocated space gets encrypted but they’ve optimized performance in that area – http://blogs.technet.com/bitlocker/

  1. With havin so much written content do you ever run into
    any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has
    a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
