Personally I would downgrade to 7 from 10. Or even better get a mac or install linux :p

+1 to @janobi - I actively develop and am a tenured MSDN fellow, and I can tell you that whilst convenient (because it's integrated into the OS) BitLocker has some relative security drawbacks [which shall not be made public], but suffice it be said, use Veracrypt or similar if you're looking for a little more "bulletproof-ness". Akin to this thought, if your intention is to be able to operate with WebDAV capabilities, you'll never be 100% secured, no matter the software and/or hardware components (at this time), and your selection(s) for such supporting titles is significantly more limited.

If you know what you want to secure, have a look-see at the following document. You should glean a general scope of [what] spec you'll need to protect yourself most: NIAP CPP Document - Collab. NIST SP 800-53

Hope this helps.
