There is now a tool called Truecrypt to encrypt the entire hard drive on Windows 8. What are the pros and cons of doing so and in what circumstances should this be done?

Pros = none

Cons = more to go wrong

Unless you are storing a lot of very confidential info not worth doing the whole drive, just do any document.
