Or you have a large bookmark collection what you […]

Using TrueCrypt 4

I had it on my list “to look at” for a long time and finally I found some time to look at this. TrueCrypt gives you the ability to either create an encrypted partition, or to create a file on any partition which contains an encrypted filesystem aka “Container”. So far the theory then. I […]
