Windows 7 Ultimate US x64
Win 7, Encryption and SSD


I hope I've managed to choose the correct place for this post, else please direct me :-)

Now, I was planning to utilize TrueCrypt for complete drive-encryption on my Win 7 installation. I don't have a motherboard with an option to utilize Bitlocker.

However, seen reviews and benches in this regard put a sad smiley on my face - damn those SSD's seem to run poorly with full drive encryption on Win with Truecrypt.

What options do I have? A container-solution is not useable in my case, I do need complete drive encryption (or at least system-partition encryption).

I also read some negative stuff on wear and tear, trim etc. when using encryption.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
