Hi, I'm about to give my laptop for a repair & I don't want the repair man to be able to access my files. I know windows passwords can be bypassed using tools booted from a live USB & BIOS password can be reset with physical access. Thus, I'm planning to encrypt my hard drive. I can't afford a 500 GB SSD at this point. Since it's Windows 10 home basic, I don't have bitlocker as a choice. Since VeraCrypt is the only option, I wanted to know, those who have encrypted their hard drives with VeraCrypt, how is the performance of Windows 10 after encryption? Does the performance noticeably suffer when doing regular tasks like browsing & using other general purpose applications that are not games? I'll use default Veracrypt settings to encrypt the drive.
