'''Full Disk Encryption''' or '''Whole Disk Encryption''' is a phrase that was coined by [[Seagate]] to describe their encrypting [[hard drive]]. Under such a system, the entire contents of a hard drive are encrypted. This is different from [[Full Volume Encryption]] where only certain partitions are encrypted.
