    Hi!

    What software do I need in a TC hidden OS?

    Assuming that hidden OS is never meant to go online (its only purpose would be working with hidden volumes), do I need things like firewall, AV/AT/AS, cleaners, HIPS etc.?

    Meaning, no security software needed for the hidden OS?

    How about defrag, imaging software, any other utilities?

    Defrag has nothing to do with security at all.
    Imaging isn't interesting if you want a reliable backup.
    I just backup the files that are important to me.
    So only personal files, in a Windows enviroment, like everything in "Documents and settings" , favorites, mailbox etcetera.

    And that saves alot of space.
