I worry when I see...
...the word 'encryption' when it comes to user files especially if teamed with 'by default'. It just adds another level of danger when it comes to failed HDDs and data recovery of folks data that doesn't require such levels of protection.
"So you did a back up?"
Of course not. Their tears will sustain me I guess. This also applies to basically re-installing the OS and data too. Just making the support folks job all the harder and economically not viable.
On a side note when will MS enable DEP/SEHOP etc. etc. by default? You know, basically slip EMET into the OS as standard. I would have thought that would be a step in the right direction that should have happened at least 5+ years ago.
