I recently got Windows 10, and I am not overly thrilled at Microsoft having a copy of my password on their servers. I will also be forced to make a hotmail account, instead of just using a local account. I am forced to use Windows because of my job, so iOS and Linux are out of the question.
Is there a way of using Bitlocker full disk encryption with just a local account, and without sending Microsoft a copy of my key?
If I have to use VeraCrypt (without the plausible deniability) would I have problems because I am using a branded Samsung laptop with an SSD which likely uses TRIM.
I miss the old days of local Windows accounts, and mechanical hard drives, but I am forced to stick with my current setup.
