Its a very useful function of windows it is mainly use to encrypt files that are located on your hard disks,so that no one can access your data no matter whether they are physically connected to your system,even Administrator can't access your files.this is the only feature which lets user to protect their data.
This feature is quite secure and reliable through BitLocker you can encrypt your entire drive,doing this can protect your drive from getting infected by malwares. Bitlocker is an extra layer on your system protection. after encryption your data won't be in readable form.
It allows you to run Virtual Machine which act like another PC within the windows on your own pc.in simple words you can install another OS inside your current OS,but those OS would be called Virtual OS.through Hyper-v you can also install other versions of windows.This feature is Similar to vmware workstation which allows you to do the same!
5.Virtual Hardisk (VHD) Booting
this is a awesome feature it allows you to boot directly from a VHD file.Now the Q would be coming in your mind what is VHD all about?
well, VHD file is just like a Separate Hard Drive which is stored within a file on your hard drive.it is installed on your physical hard disk although its a logical thing but it acts like a separate hard drive.it would be useful for those who want to install OS with their own need/customization.
This is a traditional strategy of Microsoft which the company is following since the windows occupied the market,anyway tell which feature you like the most?and have you to ask anything?comment below!
