Does anyone have experience working both with Windows 7 BitLocker and Macrium Reflect?
Ditto question regarding Windows 7 BitLocker and Image for Windows (Terabyte Unlimited)?
I'm asking because I am wondering if I should engage Windows 7 BitLocker on my laptop that I use at different schools during my substitute teaching days.  Although I make monthly or bi-monthly backups, that does not protect against (possible or potential) theft of the laptop.
I have Windows 7 Professional and not looking to upgrade to Ultimate or Enterprise.
W7P doesn't have, cannot download, cannot use Windows BitLocker
I'm posting here because if any HDD encryption is invoked, both MR7 and IfW3 has to be able to work with not only the backup thereof, but also, the restore thereof.
Be advised, I asked this earlier on College Cafe's Computer Technologies, Freebooter gave great advice.  I'm here asking for any same-quality 2nd opinion.
