No problem winglet. I think I understand your point, you're keeping it simple.
Here is an example of my point...
Encrypted Drive X - (~100 GB) - Private files, documents, etc. No media, photos, etc. In my setup, this drive is on my server and it's not even physically in the same computer as my photography and media stuff. This stuff is encrypted before it goes anywhere, backups, online, etc.
Non-Encrypted Drives M, N, O, P Q, etc... - (~ 2TB x 5 = 10TB) - Photography for over 5+ years,. Lightroom Catalogs, Music, Video, non-sensitive stuff, etc. These are all RAID 1 drives and are backed up on external drives, online, etc.
As you can see, I have very little need to encrypt all the photography and media files. It's a needless step and honestly, puts encryption on stuff I really don't want it. It makes good sense to encrypt the other private stuff because it is important and possibly sensitive. I'm not talking about picking and choosing files, I simply have one drive that is encrypted and all the other drives that are not. Even though it is called file level encryption, it can be managed on a drive by drive basis, at least in the Windows world.
