As Daver6 says above, Windows and BitLocker with recovery key on USB stick or on the cloud is an easy and excellent solution. There are many commercial and shareware solutions but some of these have proven to be problematic in recovering data.Does anyone have any suggestions for the best way to encrypt an external hard drive. There seem to be lots of products out there but not sure which one to choose
Another solution which I use as a backup for my Surface is the Samsung T5/7 etc SSD external drives which have their own encryption system, although some reports say it can be cracked, but probably not really a worry.
