Out of curiosity (I'm not this insane/worried), could one create a TC volume contained within the hidden TC volume? (Thereby making a volume, in a volume, in a volume - it would be interesting
Also, TC is on the flash drive itself and not on any of my computers, so anyone that was looking for it would have to have the drive itself to find it. But I'm not hiding from the tall black men in the big black van that are "here to help you"
, just other overly-curious kids at school that have the want and knowledge to rummage through my data like it is a toy store (we have some high level tech classes that can be twisted to assist in hacking and the like, and I had a 120GB hard drive stolen (at school!) last year with some data on it), as well as simply losing the drive and not having to freak out because of the couple GB of personal data on the drive is now in someones possession.
f0dder, I don't have any direct or indirect experience with any of this, but it strikes me that it doesn't matter how big the man is who is after you, but rather how big of an example they want to make out of you.
Heh, that's true. But in that situation if you could turn the tables, you could make a complete idiot out of whomever was after you (look, he says this this and this, but it's not true because this this and this! <begin media attention swarm>)
you can run TCHunt over a drive to find likely TC containers.
And I'm sure any Federal Authorities would have even better versions of similar software.
TCH found my volume, but it also found about 15 more false positives. It also detected a couple corrupted files (in addition to those 15), making it somewhat arguable that your file is really just some corrupt data (and by creating corrupt data with it within the same folder, that would assist in the argument, would it not? Some whacked-out software went bananas on this folder and you're to blame because it looks like it could, possibly, hold encrypted data??
