Can anyone tell me is there an encryption ware that has no start up password.I don't really need the security part all I need is the ability to stop cloning.I have worked with bit-locker,Vera-crypt,True-crypt,Discrypt. They all require password start.I need to hide the operating system.I need the system to work while encrypted.Then when the drive is taken out of that computer and opened it needs to read format drive.Is there a software for this?

I'm afraid I do not even understand the question...

 

Encrypted drive...but with no password/passphrase required?

 

There are removable drives with FDE (Full Disk Encryption) that require a little USB key present (momentarily) to unlock the drive....that might meet your needs

BitLocker combined with a TPM chip on your laptop doesn't require a password.

And if you are not looking for full disk encryption, then you can use Windows' Encrypted File System (EFS). Doesn't require a password.
