    According to; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitLocker_Drive_Encryption

    it says Bitlocker is "providing encryption for entire volumes".
    However I just phoned Sony tech support and they tell me it is like
    EFS and encrypts file by file.

    I think Sony are wrong. Can someone reassure me that Bitlocker does
    indeed create an encrypted drive so it does not show the file names
    unless you have the encryption key? EFS obviously shows the filenames
    but not the file contents if you do not have the encryption key.

    Bitlocker is indeed full disk encryption.
