I'm trying to understand how the device encryption in windows 10 Home works (So it is not the Bitlocker of the pro version).
I Successfully activated it in my PC, I think that it worked because now appears a lock and key symbol in my C: unit (SSD).
But I'm used to the traditional encryption software like Veracrypt, where I choose a encryption key and then is very simple system like two doors.
1- First for the files encryption on boot, and the key is the encryption key.
2- Second the OS door (windows password).
But using device encryption I've got some questions,
why am I not prompted for any key at startup?
If someone get the Drive physically it would was encrypted?
If someone just access my PC and disable secure boot, they will have access to the files through another OS (bypassing my windows password)?
Finally, if someone crack the windows password, due to a flaw, the encryption is useless too?
Does this encryption method in Windows 10 Home has any documentation how it works? I could not find.
I Just find the Microsoft explanation that this encrypts your drive and the recovery key is stored in onedrive.
If I posted something in wrong way jus let me know.
