Try safeboot. You don't really need a backup but it installs faster on
a empty disk. Only problem with it being, that you'll need to keep a
Floppy drive handy in case you need to recover data.

Hi,
I have a question about FDE. I've never installed an FDE so I have
next to no idea about them - the only one I've ever used was a
boot-time Pointsec FDE on a corporate Laptop I was using.

I've had my personal Laptop for almost a year. I'd like to install an
FDE on it, but I'd like to do so without breaking any of my underlying
installs.
Is it possible to retro-fit an FDE system on to the Laptop; or should
I first take an image of the laptop, and then rebuild it with the FDE
installed, first?

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
ys
