what is BitLocker?

BitLocker Drive Encryption (get details) is a full disk encryption feature that comes with the Ultimate and Enterprise editions of Microsoft’s Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. BitLocker can be used to encrypt an entire fixed drive. By default it uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption algorithm in Cipher-block chaining (CBC) mode with a 128 bit key. Not only that, it also provides the Elephant diffuser for additional disk encryption specific security, which is not not provided by Advanced Encryption Standard.

Steps to Enable BitLocker

Follow the steps to know how to enable BitLocker in your Windows 8 PC.

You may save the recovery key in a flash drive or can save it in any location of your computer. If you wish you can also print the recovery key. Windows 8 comes with another option that you can save your key file to SkyDrive.

10. Better to say, the information age will cause economic changes which will make a precipice between poor and rich even more. For some people these changes become the blessing, for others it, for the third will not have at all any value. As my rich daddy spoke, itthere are people who force things to occur; is such who observes that occurs; also there are those who asks that has occurredit.
The education role is high, more than ever earlier
The education role is high today, more than ever earlier because things will faster vary, than ever. For the first time in history those who well is in time at school, can meet the same economic difficulties, as those who is in time badly. All of us should understand that our bankers will demand from us the financial report, instead of a report card. Bankers well know that in a life the main thing. I have written this book about to what your children should learn to achieve success in personal and in the financial plan. Before to read further, I ask you to think of following questions:
Education how much well got today by your children prepares for their future? Whether the school system responds concrete needs of your child? What do parents if their child does not like school do or badly is in time? Whether are good marks a guarantee of the future professional and financial success? Whether it is necessary in general for your child to go to traditional school to receive that education which is necessary for it?
For whom this book is intended?
This book is written for parents who understand that the world has changed also a modern education system does not correspond to specific needs of their children. This book is written for parents who prefer to play more active role in education of their children, instead of to shift responsibility on shoulders of school system.
