How to Break Into a Windows PC (and Prevent It from Happening to You)
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service. I would like to add on to this that, while encrypting your files is a good way to prevent others from being able to get at them, it is also a good way to lose a lot of important information. Encrypted files can't be accessed by ANYONE unless you have the proper decryption key. That means that if you encrypt all your files and you need to legitimately use one of these methods to get back to your account, only the brute force method will return access to those encrypted files. Edit: Also, the process of decrypting files to read takes some time (depending on the size of the files and how many files it's decrypting). Flagged Simply don't forget your password. I use TrueCrypt to protect entire partitions. I have the NTFS permissions are set to Everyone, so any user can access it as long as they have a password and/or keyfile for the partition.
