    Hello guys, i need tips for my hard disk to prevent any thieves if they obtained my laptop so they cant extract any info from my hard disk. Any tips would be great.

    Yes windows 8 is already installed/activated.

    Note: On windows 7 its very easy to extract info from the hard disk just use cmd and change permissions...

    You can also buy hardware encypted memory sticks, will obviously include spending a bit of money but 3-5 incorrect password attempts and it natively wipes itself.
