I'm fiddling around with the hard disk from my previous laptop, the only thing worth saving when I had the oops with the wine. I had it put in a case, so I can just plug it into two (
) USB ports.
I hate Windows. I was using a Windows password. Aargh. That means that I can't access the data with Windows. There is no way to input the password from another computer running Windows. But, all these supposedly password protected files are easily accessible using Linux. I could probably read them on a Mac too. I have no use for that kind of "security/". No Windog password on this laptop.
Any files that are sensitive (like client data) get proper encryption with TrueCrypt. BTW, there will be a security audit of TrueCrypt, since the NSA is working on back doors on security software. Can you trust 'NSA-proof' TrueCrypt? Cough up some dough and find out
