BitLocker is Microsoft own solution in order to provide Full Disk Encryption on your Windows or on another partition.
Holy moly, so many updates recently from VeraCrypt. Well, I like to see it positive and I like to remind you that this update is important, not only because it brings several new algorithm, it also fixes the bootloader problems in Windows.
The new VeraCrypt Beta’s fixing a major MBR problem reported by several users, including me – I posted a workaround for this. Now after 6 months the issue seems to be resolved. Beta 7 was posted March 27 2018 and even within the same week followed by Beta 8. The changelog for Beta 8 wasn’t updated yet, but it’s a pure bugfix release.
The veracrypt-w10-patcher project is something which I wished would be integrated native into VeraCrypt, it allows the user to upgrade their Windows without the need to decrypt the system drive first.
The latest VeraCrypt Final/Beta seems to have some troubles with latest Windows changes, which means the pretest fails. This test is needed to verify if your HDD/SSD can be proper encrypted before the actual process really starts to avoid running into problems.
