    Advice on approach to encryption...


    Hi
    Would really appreciate experienced view on protecting personal data (banking, etc) on a laptop.

    Intel [email protected] with 16Gb Ram running Win 10 Home v.1909. Very old versions of Word and Excel. 2 SSD's

    Unfortunately started using it before really thinking about security. Have moved My Docs off C: onto D:

    Wondering whether to
    1: Encrypt both drives (using veracrypt). Question is will this slow my PC noticably?

    2. Encrypt only the D:. With 2 options
    2a. Put only My Docs on the D: and regularly (especially when travelling) clear all Temp Folders on the C drive to ensure no copies of documents are stored there. I presume this cause no issue at all to the running of the PC? But is a little labour intensive. I have a further question here.

    2b. Put My Docs AND Windows Temp folders onto the D: and then encrypt. Would this cause an issue in booting Windows when the Temp folders are on the encrypted D:? I have no idea...i'm not that computer savvy.

    Can someone please enlighten me as to the best approach, there is very likely other better ways i have not considered.

    Thanks very much in advance
    Syn

    :)
