that your post was a promotion for that software you mentioned.
Apart from posting in a forum that deals with Coding and Scripting which would seem to be the incorrect venue for your post, I would have to say that your story is nothing new, and has been heard and seen countless times before in these forums and elsewhere.
It just goes to show the value some people place on their personal possessions and personal details.
And finally, you mentioned software. I need no such software, whether expensive commercial software or free. I don't keep personal details on my computers and I am very aware of the risks that travellers face when they move around with their laptops and smart phones and such.
So, I don't normally post to forums like this, but I just felt compelled to share my story.
I was staying at a hotel and happened to be at the bar late one night when, maybe after a few too many cocktails, I left my laptop bag behind. The next morning, I woke up, realized it was missing... but it was too late. The bag was nowhere to be seen downstairs.
Oh well, I'm thinking, right? I can always buy another laptop. It's just a possession...
WRONG. A few weeks later, I started getting weird bills in the mail. Whoever found my laptop got into all my tax information, which I keep on my computer, and was able to open up FIVE credit cards in my name. So what happened? My accounts were frozen. My student loans got all messed up. I kept calling customer service after customer rep, only to get transferred somewhere else.
That made me reassess my file security. I got VAULT REVOLUTION, and I couldn't be happier. It doesn't take up any memory space on my computer and all I have to do is enter my password and enter LOCK or UNLOCK. And starting at like $20! It's an extra step I'm willing to take to keep my identity safe. It's turned me into a bit of a tech-junkie.
