Re: X220 SSD Drive with Full Disk Encryption (FDE) (Intel 320 or others)

Hi bruce7, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

Yes you just set the ATA password in the BIOS. You can't access the disk without it. I used to used BitLocker but not on this SSD. Check out the Security Features Brief here:

Hope this helps!

 

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Thanks for the info bananaman :smileyhappy:

 

That gives me some peace of mind knowing that my data are encrypted in the event that it is stolen.

Removing the bracket is simple. It requires replacing the 4 screws holding it with shorter ones to hold the case together.


Hi.  Does anyone know if these 4 shorter screws are included with the Intel 320 series or if they must be purchased separately?
