We need to meet a requirement that the data on the server is encrypted just so that if someone literally stole the server there would be some safeguards. I don't know much about Bitlocker - would this work?
It is a simple document management system - database with file repository - assume the sensitive data is only in the repository.
I don't need to encrypt the OS. So can I encrypt the data (volume or just folders?) on the "E" drive with bitlocker? Would this be seamless when booting normally - I think so. But if someone actually stole the server they would need to log in to the OS to get to the data - if they removed the data drives (and rebuilt the RAID) it would be encrypted. Does it/can it work this way? Anyone have things set up like this?
