I have a server which consists of an SSD and 2 x 2TB hard drives.
I want to encrypt the 2 x 2TB hard drives only as there is not much sensitive data is stored on the SSD - The 2TB drive letters are D and E
Once a day ALL data on D are replicated on E using Robocopy, the server is RDP only so it would be very hard for me to enter password at boot. I have a few programs which will access data on D on bootup.
A few questions:
Which encryption method do you recommend?
If my drives are encrypted, will they be slower?
Will the server use more CPU (on average) if drives are encrypted? if so, by how much?
