What is a TPM, and Why Does Windows Need One For Disk Encryption?



BitLocker disk encryption normally requires a TPM on Windows. Microsoft’s EFS encryption can never use a TPM. The new “device encryption” feature on Windows 10 and 8.1 also requires a modern TPM, which is why it’s only enabled on new hardware. But what is a TPM?

[all variants] full disk encryption vs home folder encryption
Computers
I'm getting a new laptop in a week or so and wondering which way to go as far as encryption. The two options seem to be full disk via the alternate and/or home disk.

Thanks

but i forgot to encrypt the home directory at install..
now there is no option to encrypt the home directory if i make a new user.

is it not possible to encrypt the home directory if the disk is fully encrypted?
is that th
Disk Encryption vs Home Encryption

I've encrypted my disk using the Lubuntu disk encryption on installation and also used the Home folder encryption option. I wonder whether this adds security or if the home folder encryption is redundant since I've encrypted the disk.

Here’s how to check if your Windows 10 PC’s storage is encrypted and how to encrypt it if it isn’t. Encryption isn’t just about stopping the NSA — it’s about protecting your sensitive data in case you ever lose your PC.
