    There's probably no silver bullet solution for anything... At least nothing that I ever bought seemed to have worked forever Smiley

    I really dislike disk encryption for maintenance reasons.

    I really like encrypted files using some type of keyring Dongle. Or alternatively encrypted files using some type of biometric ID.
