Hi
I have a new e6520 laptop which has the dell protection software for encrypting the drive.  The bios also has the ability lock the HDD should it go missing.

Which is the best option to use should the laptop/disk go missing?   it would appear that the bios hdd PW is sufficient and easier to manage...

Thanks
