Yoga S730 drive encryption or password

2019-05-11, 22:35 PM

Hello,

 

there is a way to encrypt ssd drive (steal protection) in this notebook with Windows 10 Home ?

Or only works with Windows 10 Pro ? 

Or there is another way to protect hard drive in case of steal ? 

 

Many thanks 

 

EDIT : Like my previous post I think that i solved this by set bios hdd password.

But i didn't found how exactly hdd password works. Is it locked in ssd firmware so if someone steal laptop, put off ssd a want to read a data - it will be locked ?

 

Or how exactly hdd password works ? 

 

Thanks

Hi Imperator87!

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

You can use BitLocker to encrypt SSD. Details here, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/information-protection/bitlocker/bitlocker-device-encryption-overview-windows-10. Alternatively, there are 3rd party software that lets you do it like VeraCrypt tool. Please note that using these methods will not be covered by the warranty. 

 

Regards,

I read some posts about not clear informations about password requirements. So is there a lenght limitation or allowed characters ? 

I read that someone use a longer password in bios settings but startup password field only get a e.g. 8 character lenght a he didn't get to his laptop.
