We use Microsoft BitLocker. It is free and excellent.

Try using cipher.exe from command line. It is available in all versions of Windows 7 Pro.

Best would be whole disk encryption.
"Some" laptops means less than 5 machines? Then use disk cryptor.
If you have 10 machines and more, you might prefer a manageable solution, then you would need to buy one.
Symantec desktop encryption (formerly PGP) for example.
