Does that include encryption of the bootdisk C:? Is it still possible to
boot then? Might be dangerous I think; I would say there should be an
encrypted disk for data only, including temporary data, like the SAS WORK
directory. Some encryption software can encrypt a complete disk partition (a
drive with a letter in Windows/DOS), some can encrypt a partial partition by
creating a physical file (of any desired size) in a partition that is the
encrypted virtual disk (with its own drive letter), some can do both. I
always prefer an encrypted virtual disk.
I have been using (the free) Scramdisk in the past on W9x with SAS 6.12
without problems. The software does not support WNT/WXP.
