Kids charity hit by server theft


Re: Encrypt file systems ?

I had similar results using Bitlocker: a hit of around 3-5%. But it should be noted that this is with a CPU with AES extensions. Some older CPUs wont have hardware support for encryption and in that case the hit is much higher. Worth knowing so people can check in advance.
