This paper is to explain and develop an efficient method for Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Security using Full Disk Encryption (FDE) with Advanced Encryption Standards (AES) for data security specifically for Personal Computers (PCS) and Laptops. The focus of this work is to authenticate and protect the content of HDD from illegal use. The paper proposes an adaptive method for protecting a HDD based on FDE. The proposed method is labeled as Disk Trust. FDE encrypts entire content or a single volume on user disk. Disk Trust implements Symmetric key cryptography with, Advanced Encryption Standards.
