lol they an crack a 128bit key in the matter of a few hours. I have a few friends who were atone time employeed by the NSA FBI CIA WhiteHouse, etc. I even have some who are currently working there heh. Trust me, from what I've heard and seen it can be done quickly. All encryption should be concidered personal encryption since if the gov wants in it enough theil crack it themselves.

Yes, firstly they comply 100%, secondly there is backdoors in pgp, and third its no longer being made/updated.

Okay, I am not sure about .bak, or .tmp since these files can be used for important things some times but .chk can be deleted, and no you dont have to look through your entire hardrve for files with those extensions....
you could do a del *.chk but that would be limited to the directory you are in
how bout we use that little util called find
search for *.chk and then select all and delete.

In addition make sure to clear out cookies and internet files everyonce in a while. Have you tried the diskcleanup util taht comes with XP? that cn usaually get you some space....
and if you are reallly desperate for space i would think about moveing documents and other files that dont get much use to floppy or CDR backup...

aaaaaaaaaaawwwwwww

ok so best crypt should be the way to head. BUT what about the key process (RSA/diffie) i know that's independent. CAn that process be found somewhere else, I mean the public private key thing was really practical.

Ow and about the HDD space, the temp folder that corresponds to the account is use (under "document and settings") so that would be
c:\documents and settings\username\local settings\temp
is f**king massive !! Like > 300megs how can I get it cleared auto, or put a limit to it.

And know that I think of it, anyone know where the environmment variables are stored such as where to look for temp, user settings "my document", start menu /etc
That would allow me to make window point to another HDD (more space to breath).
(looked in the registry but nothing found :-(


thx

best crypt is quite nice, but the keys are sadly stored in your archive, so someone witha good 40 years of time on their hands will have an interesting time..

Soap--> start menu -->settings-->control panel-->system-->advanced--> environment variables. at least in win2k most all windows should be real similar in this respect.

I use to use Bcwipe to wipe my hard drive and temp files blah blah. I dunno if it was good or bad it was free so I didnt complain. It says DoD 7 pass wipe but if it truly is or not I dunno.

Umm we ran a test, it CAN be recovered, but its not likely... BUT if you run a DoD wipe once a week or so for your freespace, concider that somethign you deleted a week ago will have been wiped 4x on a 8 pass DoD extended charecter rotation wipe, so thats 32x with extended character rotations a month, multiply that yearly and well you don't have to worry about **** lol... I don't think their goinna give the resources to search for deleted **** thats been wiped 384 times lol..

Yo sprinter, that's cool I had found that, but where are they stored.
How could I modify (as an admin) all the variables, not just the one concerning MY account.
BTW, it doesn't let u checge anything else than the temp folder path :-(

yeah I though I was a registry key too so I spooned around but didn't find anything...
Then again I'm not that good with the registry (Knew I should finished that tut..)

Oh and about XP, I used to run 2k Pro and tested XP. I beleive i gave me all That 2k could giving, including more stability and ALOT more portablity.
then again, that's only /me 's opinon
