I've never tried one of these before.
but basically, would it prevent people from even booting up the computer ? or at-least getting a password prompt before the Windows screen even appears ?
right, before ANYTHING loads you get prompted for a pass, no pass? no dice.
remove the drive and stick it in another machine? unreadable!
as stated you will take a perf hit but if your stuff has to be safe you won't mind.
a) use the password option in the BIOS
huh? c'mon those don't work!
