In the Name of a Thief

Anyone who thinks recovering from loss of precious electronic data in a USB drive is easy must be a Tech-Muggle freak.

Fine, you were tempted; ok, you got the opportunity of checking everything personal and classified in my bag; yeah yeah, it was my fault as I forgot it at a place that ‘honest’ men/women like you frequent. But that did not mean, you actually ‘had’ to ‘steal’ a small, little gadget worth no more than a thousand rupees!

Now I will have to live with the loss; that of everything crammed into my late Kingston U3 1GB USB Memory Stick. Alas, I have to suffer from frustration and distrust any or all stranger zombies of your kind with everything that is near and dear to me.

And you will not live in peace unless somebody does the same to you what you have done to me. Yeah!

In Memory of my lost (read: stolen) USB Disk

It happened to me last week as I forgot my bag for a night at a centre for educational excellence and had to suffer from the consequences.

What was the last precious thing/gadget that you lost in a crime of this sort??

    Sorry to hear your loss, I agree that worth of USB is not the money but the data that is stored on it. It is very frustrating that you now have to live with it that somebody will be looking at your data that you have stored on the USB and that is near and dear to you. I am not sure if you have properly secured your data on the USB or not by encrypting it. So for the future and as a lesson learned, encrypt your data on the USB since its very easy to lost the USB or as in your case it is stolen. I would like to suggest you to use TrueCrypt software which is a free software and allows you to encrypt your data with industry’s standard strong encryption algos. You can download it from here http://www.truecrypt.org/. Let me know if you need to know how to work this thing.
