EDIT: I deleted the original and moved my question to SuperUser.
I'm new to serverfault, I've asked one question and it's been downvoted with no comment. Do you think that's because someone decided that a hard drive in my professional workstation which needs to be encrypted because of my employers rules is not within a "professional capacity"? If so, can you please direct me to more on-topic stackexchange site? Otherwise, suggestions on how to improve my question are welcome.
ServerFault is better suited for questions related to the things system administrators encounter on a day-to-day basis. Regardless of its use-type, a workstation "question" is off-topic here. It would be on-topic if you were to say ask a question about deploying machines with encrypted drives or the best practices to that effect.
Serverfault is a place for questions related to professional system administration. That is a question specific to your employer, or, at the very liberal, SuperUser.com, though I suspect they'll punt it as well.
