I lost an external drive and didnt want to send it back for warranty because i had no idea who may get a hold of it and see my tax returns etc etc....i got a new drive and will password protect the backups from now on but i was wondering how easy it was for someone to hack those passwords?
More abouthard crack password backup software
That depends entirely on the software that was used to create the backup. Personally, I wouldn't trust a password-protected backup to be secure.
so they how should i secure a backup in case of warranty repair?
