Hard Drive Recovery Associates, a data recovery service company based in Irvine, California, has recently published a blog post that examines the benefits of upgrading to Windows 10 Pro. The advantages of upgrading to Windows 10 Pro include the ability for remote desktop connection, the BitLocker full disk encryption software, Trusted and Secured Boot, Hyper-V for running virtual machines, and Windows Sandbox.

Windows 10 Pro has a built-in Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) utility that allows the user to connect to a Windows box remotely. The RDP is not active by default so the user much enable it using the Settings. This can also be enabled using the System Properties.

Meanwhile, BitLocker is a full disk encryption software that is included in Windows 10 Pro. This particular software offers a streamlined encryption experience for the Windows 10 PC. It allows the encryption of entire drives, which means that it can only be used on top-level storage devices on the computer, such as the hard drives, removable USB flash drives, and SSDs. Its primary benefit is to offer an extra level of protection for the files contained in the drive. Anyone who wants to access the files in the encrypted drive will need to provide authentication information, such as a Windows password.

The Trusted Boot and Secure Boot in Windows 10 Pro work in tandem to protect the system from malware and rootkits. They check each component of the startup process before it is loaded. Secure Boot makes use of Unified Extensible Firmware Interfaced (UEFI) firmware to ensure that only “properly signed” bootloaders could execute.

Hyper-V is virtualization software that will not only be able to virtualize operating systems but also entire hardware components like network switches and hard drives. Most often, running a virtual machine is useful when running software that does not work on the OS. For instance, in a Windows machine, it is possible to install an application that is only available for the Mac by running a macOS instance on the Windows laptop to install it.

And finally, there is the Windows Sandbox of Windows 10 Pro. It allows the user to run an unknown app on the PC in an isolated desktop environment to test whether it is safe. This isolated desktop environment is temporary in that once the user is done running the app to test it, the whole sandbox will be erased.

Meanwhile, Jack Edwards, a representative for Hard Drive Recovery Associates, says, “While these differences may convince you to join the Windows 10 Pro bandwagon, you may most likely be all alone when dealing with data loss and recovery. But do you really have to deal with it all by yourself? Allow us to help you with our expertise in data recovery.”
