Re: Why does anyone trust Bitlocker?
I use bitlocker, and it is mainly for convenience and reliability reasons. I trust bitlocker will protect me against thieves accessing my data and against the police accessing it without a good cause (in that they might be able to access it, but only with considerable effort and costs), and that protection is enough for me. If the government is really after me, disk encryption is not going to make the difference.
I don't use other encryption products (well, I use the hardware SSD encryption of my Samsung SSD, but that has the same issues as bitlocker), as I find bitlocker to be convenient to use, and have faith in its reliability (which for me is really critical, I don't want to loose data because of issues with the encryption software).
