I've some question related to PGP desktop 9.0.
Does encrypting the whole disk with this tool is reliable system?
If I encrypting it, do I danger my data to some failures?

Thanks,

If you are refering to the PGPDisk Encryption it doesn't actually encrypt your whole hard drive. You create virtual disks and encrypt those. If you want whole disk encryption then you are going to need something more tightly integrated with the operating system like the Windows Encrypted File System or something of that ilk.

I believe he is asking about PGP's whole disk encryption product which does encrpyt the whole drive..

Ahh, interesting little product. TBH though entire disk encryption scares me. I would prefer to just have the files which I needed to be encrypted stored in an encrypted virtual drive and then just mount that as and when.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
