Man, I don't know now... since I've heard there is a chance encrypting your data could lead to that data being corrupted, I'm not so sure I want to encrypt it now.
I guess I could encrypt my data on my main machine and then have that same data on back-up drives un-encrypted so I've always have an un-encrypted version of my data...
How does encryption work when you need to access a file that is, say a MS Word doc?
How does Word access the file I'd be trying to open? Do I put in a password in a special window that opens?
