Will a Intel 530 msata ssd play nicely with bitlocker? I mean utilizing the hardware encryption and what not.

Hello Jaman42

We offer a standard encryption of this drive which is called AES 256 bit. You can also set up a password on the drive if your BIOS allows you to do so.*Please bear in mind that if a password is set up at BIOS level, you will need to have it safe somewhere because if you forget it, there is no way you can reset it.

*However, if you set up a password through a 3rd-party application such as Bitlocker* we encourage you to contact them in order to get further information on this.

On our best effort to assist you, please take a look at this link: How to Enable BitLocker Hardware Encryption with SSDs • Helge Klein
