Hi everyone. I recently plugged in an MX300 into a new laptop, hoping I could use either SATA password locking or self-encryption for security. As it turns out the laptop supports neither of these features, so I will have to resort to software encryption (via Bitlocker). Is it possible to turn off self-encryption on this drive? Will a PSID revert operation accomplish this? I would like to avoid the overhead of self-encryption on top of the software encryption. I'm thinking this would improve overall drive performance, if only marginally. Any insight would be much appreciated. Cheers.
