yet another 'new, shiny' feature that gets a *yawn*

so how much of a pain IS it to set up everything to be "scramble-proof"? And when will the ransomware be smart enough to "un-do all of that" ?

I'm guessing that it's NOT password protected with a separate pass-phrase, nor write protected with something that's truly tamper-proof.

and without much review, we only have Microsoft's claims about its features...

/me hope it actually works, but I suspect that maybe it's not worth the hype.
