I am currently in the market for a tool to encrypt the hard disk of a laptop to protect it in the event it was stolen.  Any recommendations?

Thank you.

I understand that I would rather have the data be lossed than to have it fall into the wrong hands.  Do all of these type of applications carry the same risk of data loss if the password is lost/forgotten?

Well, that's the point, isn't it? How is a security solution supposed to protect your vital data, if the exact same data that should be protected against theft by people not knowing the password can be restored through some backdoor?

Yes, thus far, truecrypt has no recovery tools available, no back door, no secret super pass. If you loss/forget the pass, you lose the data.
