That sounds like a cold boot attack and has nothing to do with a brute force attack on the recovery key.

@Eddie For FDE solutions other than BitLocker that leverage AES-NI: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AES_instruction_set#Applications

I think that the worst thing that can be said about BitLocker is that the Elephant Diffuser was removed in Windows 8.

@Cestarian It seems that encfs is not a full disk encryption product and bleachbit isn't an encryption product at all, it's a free space scrubber.

@Cestarian You can't declare two encryption products equally good just because they use they same algorithm. You have to consider the mode of operation and many implementation details. One mistake can wreck the whole system.
