Hey there everyone,

I have a quick question. Right now I am running 10.5 and Vista Ultimate, I was just wondering that If I were to bitlock my vista drive, does it do the entire volume or just the vista partition?

Thanks

Just the Vista partition, the Bitlocker feature is a function of NTFS, which is the Vista partition's filesystem. Also note that running in Boot Camp, Vista can't see the Mac partition without third party software like MacDrive.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

A ha.

Well that makes a lot of sense, I never really thought of it that way.

Thank you for your help.
