  • Question

  • I have an hp envy dv7 with win 8.1 pro. I am trying to encrypt and password protect files and drives. I can't figure out how to use anything except bitlocker. however, i do not have a TPM. Is there a workaround so I can encrypt my external seagate hard drive as well as password protecting files and folders? I have been on the phone with India or malaysia tech support for microsoft and HP and noone will help me without charging me $150.00 to use the software they provided on my $2000.00 laptop and extented service 4 year replacement plan from HP. Crazy! I'm so frustrated. please help. Jerry
