Just curious, say, not considering the strength of my password (let's assume it's very strong, something like "j*ds73hSoe93%KE4") how secure is my data on an external drive that is protected with a BitLocker feature of Windows 7 Ultimate?

As long as the password can't be guessed it's essentially uncrackable at the moment. Having said that, this question is better suited for SuperUser. –  romkyns Jan 13 '12 at 20:31
    
What kind of attack are you referring to? For example, there might be a difference between someone just stealing the drive and taking it home to fiddle with versus someone inserting malware into your system to potentially break in that way. Not that I can answer either way, but the question seems a bit vague. –  Mark Wilkins Jan 13 '12 at 20:33
    
Sorry, I should've posted it there... As the attack goes, I mean protecting my data (files) from being stolen. –  ahmd0 Jan 13 '12 at 21:02
