The full disk encryption (FDE) is the process of encrypting all the data on an device using an encryption algorithm, it can maximize the security of the data on the device. There are many full disk encryption software for Windows 7 Professional available on the market, such as TrueCrypt, VeraCrypt, BitLocker. A lot of people ask me how to choose a full disk encryption software or which is the best full disk encryption software for Windows 7 Professional? I think it's mainly a personal preference. If you like open source software, then Veracrypt or TrueCrypt is the best choice. If you trust Microsoft Corporation then BitLocker should be a better option. Personally, I think Veracrypt and TrueCrypt is too complex and suitable for professionals, BitLcoker is simpler and easier to use. The most important thing is that BitLocker read and write feature is a built-in feature of Windows 11/10/8/7, so drives encrypted with BitLocker in Windows 7 Professional can be used directly on all Windows 11/10/8/7 computers without the need to install the appropriate decryption software. In addition, BitLocker supports encrypting Windows System partition and all data partitions, so I say it is currently the best full disk encryption software for Windows 7 Professional. Unfortunately, the BitLocker encryption feature is not available in Windows 7 Professional, and this tutorial will teach you how to encrypt partitions with BitLocker under Windows 7 Professional.
