I am currently doing research in this area, and the new(ish) BitLocker which
is available in Vista Ultimate or Enterprise will provide you with Hard
Drive Encryption.  I would say full but it does depend on the configuration
of the laptop.


Where multi partitions exist BitLocker can be used with EFS to provide
adequate protection.


But again it all depends on the nature and quantity of data that is stored
on your laptop as to the best product for you and of course cost.


PGPDIsk is also good, but relatively expensive.


There are in fact a number of other products that I have not tested.

This brings up a very good question for end-users:  What end-user (not
corporate) full disc encryption products are out there for protecting the
contents of a Windows laptop?  The Mac world has an excellent built-in
(FileVault) but the Windows world doesn't.  Any recommendations or
experiences to share?

There is a nice piece in the Independent today (page 6) relating to 
Laptops, blackberries and usb keys being lost by the gov. Also hacking 
incidents on various state bodies.
