I have a Dell Inspiron i7 and have swapped out the 1Tb disk with a 1Tb Samsung 850 Pro. I want to encrypt the disk and it seems I have 2 options.
1. The Samsung 850 Pro appears to encrypt automatically and it says if I set an HDD Password in BIOS then all will be fine.
2. Use Bit Locker (with Hardware Acceleration) on the drive
What are the advantages of either. If 1 is true then will implementing 2 do encryption twice?? Will the performance overhead be the same for both.
I don't have anything Ultra Sensitive on my SSD but figured there is bound to be something I don't want to be seen. Any clarity on this issue would be very welcome!!
