Default Zonealarm Datalock – laptop data security

I have a lot of personal info on my pc, like amazing pictures, info about my hunting gear, personal stuff like my address, etc... I don't want anyone but me to ever have access to this stuff-esp my address and personal info.

I am thinking about getting Zonealarm’s DataLock data encryption software. Basically I think that for laptops, it is a good way to make sure that if it gets stolen nobody can access my data. It seems to run in the back ground so that you don’t know it is actually running.

They say that it uses a pre-boot authentication in which users must provide the correct username and password before the operating system boot process will even begin. They also have a 24/7 password recovery service incase you forget your password.

A couple of questions:

1) Is this pre-boot authentication something that will help keep the data secure?
2) What kind of encryption is used?
3) How hard will DataLock make getting the data from my hard drive?

The PC Mag review of it is here:

A laptop hard drive that develops a problem will likely cause the laptop itself to crash or freeze unexpectedly. This is usually down to bad sectors, or in particular the area of the hard drive known as the boot sector (where the operating system is stored). Bad sectors will usually result in the steady degradation of the hard drive itself despite using software to resolve the issue. Using software to relocate data from one area to another of a disk may keep the data safe but it will not stop the spread of the bad sectors.

Laptops represent the key to a lot of your company data. If they are stolen and used maliciously, you could experience a data breach; it's likely cybercriminals will sell your confidential information on the dark web.
