    in the microsoft.public.windows.vista.security news group, =?
    I have presented sessions on Bitlocker at a couple of TechEds so
    I am quite familiar with how it works. Apparently you are not.
    Yes, BDE does provide protection against tampering with boot
    files, however, that only applies if your computer has a TPM
    chip in it, and again, it has nothing at all to do with the
    disk-level encryption that BDE provides in addition to the boot
    file protection. They are two separate mechanisms.

    Kerry,

    My faith and confidence with Microsoft’s BitLocker Team and Vista’s Tech
    Support remains as strong as Vista’s BitLocker 256 Encryption believing what
    was verbally articulated, compounded with reading BitLocker’s white paper
    documents (saved to my HDD), and other Microsoft documents that BitLocker
    performs precisely as described.

    Why would Microsoft publish such documents, and then verbally share what is
    written if the information was not factual and accurate?

    No, I can not force you for believing facts, instead, only guide you to the
    path of an incredible learning experience. You have the knowledge and ability
    for performing the exact same research as I for learning fact from fiction.

    One would believe the developers and designers of BitLocker surely must
    fully distinguish the ability for what BitLocker performs.

    Additionally, I’m certain that some folks would refuse believing the
    benefits of allowing Vista Format a DVD-RW using Live Format, the DVD-RW
    functions as an USB Flash Media. No, the DVD does not have the ability for
    plugging into USB Ports.

    Also, USB Flash Media has three versions of Flash, and Vista prefers one
    type of Flash yet files and folders may be saved on all Versions of USB
    Flash. Although, ReadyBoost will only load on one type of USB Flash Media.

    Respectfully,
