    LOL, I thought I was bad with a 2 GIG vault,
    Reason I use it is for ease of use and excellent security, not that ive much inside the vault

    Out of the 10GB only like 5GB is currently in use, remaining space is just reserved.
    The only reason it is heavier than usual it's because i got my media files in there, otherwise it would be less than 100MB. :D

    HAHAHAHAHA nothing weird man.
    Just pictures of my family, me and everything else.
    I did not include videos because i have too many videos recorded in 1080P from my last trip overaseas.

    In fact i only have it encrypted in my desktop because it's my most "exposed" PC in the house. I have all the files without encryption in my Laptop which is only used for things like chatting, banking etc. I don't install anything in my laptop except the basics and my security software + hardening. :D

    I have a 2 GB container, and almost all of it is free. But it's there just in case...

    Yes, I use it to encrypt USB sticks as it supports a more wide range of OS than BitLocker to Go. I often have to use USB sticks in PCs from others; full support to XP is still a must.

    I use it to encrypt flash drives. I use LUKS for full disk encryption as I am on Linux. Truecrypt is great and I use it everyday :D A company I do IT for actually has a rebranded "in house" version they use, nice to see it in the "real" world :D

    I don't like encrypting whole external drives. I have read enough horror stories . . . :rolleyes:

    I've taken appropriate steps to mitigate the event of a corruption occurrence. Worst case scenario I am inconvenienced several minutes.
