Surely you'd only need to encrypt that which needs protecting.  Network
diagnosis tools don't sound like something that needs it.  And if you're
sensible enough to use different passwords, then someone finding out
your logon credentials from an unprotected diagnosis partition can't use
them to logon to the other protected one.
