I have read about encrypting the pagefile here for privacy. So I did. It just takes a second so why not? But what kind of private data can really be extracted from the pagefile? I mean, if someone stole my laptop, assuming that they knew how to access the pagefile, what kind of personal data would they see? Would it really be anything of much significance? Could there possibly be passwords or something like that? That would actually be the scariest thing that a person could steal off of my computer. But I don't see how something like that could be saved. I use Sandboxie with Eraser so I assume that all of my entered passwords are gone when I delete the sandbox, right? Anyway, I entered "fsutil behavior set encryptpagingfile 1" in the command prompt and restarted. So now if I understand correctly, my pagefile is unreadable. But what is it that is unreadable in the first place?
