The second Windows Vista Ultimate Extra released is the BitLocker and EFS (Encrypting File System) Enhancements.
This package contains two tools to help you protect your computer and keep your system secure by making it easier to use some new security features of Windows Vista Ultimate.
These tools are the Windows BitLocker Drive Preparation Tool and Secure Online Key Backup tool.

BitLocker and EFS enhancements


Windows BitLocker Drive Preparation Tool configures the hard drive of your system in order to be used with the BitLocker Drive Encryption feature of the Windows Vista. Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption encrypts everything including data, programs and even the Windows itself to increase security.


Please review the article Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption Step-by-Step Guide at Microsoft TechNet site at page Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption Step-by-Step Guide for more information on how-to's about the Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption

Secure Online Key Backup tool stores a backup of your system's BitLocker recovery password and EFS (Encrypting File System) recovery certificates in your digital locker.

 

I can recommend you keep the Vista Ultimate Extras updates for Windows DreamScene which will enable you to play movie files on your system as your desktop background and also additional features for desktop background images.
