T580 FDE

I can't figure out for the life of me if a t580 allows for FDE and how to make it work.  Forgive me if this has been asked before.  My machine is a 20L9001TUS type with a 1 TB hard drive.

I cannot find specs on that model.  Look in device manager under "disk drive".  Right click the drive and select properties.  You should see the model

It does OPAL 2 hardware encryption, but to be useful, you need also to use a HDD password (set in BIOS).  Otherwise, someone can simply read the drive in another machine.  For software encryption, you can use bitlocker.

Re: T580 FDE

The data on your drive is already encrypted.  So you need to protect the encryption key.  The easiest way to do this is to set a HDD password in BIOS setup.
