    Default Security & #ISW.FS# files

    ForceField settings say the virtualisation routine uses encryption. I assume therefore, that all files in the folder are encrypted. I have 3 questions:
    1. What is the strength of the encryption;
    2. Does all data following use of the "clear" button remain encrypted after deletion; and
    3. There has been mention in other threads of the "clear" button being a "clean" button, implying secure wiping or similar, but I don't think this is the case.......or is it?

    It is Sometimes very Difficult to Diagnose and fix a Computer from halfway across the Country,
    without All the Details,without the ability to sit in front of your Computer monitor and see what's going on..

    With respect, I don't have a problem and my questions are of a general nature concerning the software.

    ZA is all about security, but there are fundamental issues here. Without ForceField one has some control over files and data. With ForceField, one is asked to entrust the software with the task of keeping things "in order".

    For anyone concerned with real security, satisfactory answers to my questions are vital. Otherwise, users should rely on long established and trusted methods of dealing with these matters.

    I hope not to be considered an awkward customer, rather a simple, interested user.

    sorry all users here. To contact ZA staff you need to write to ZA technical support. Link to support is in my signature, they are online 24h 7d.


    1. No idea and unlikely you will get concrete indications (for security reasons)
    2. I would be suprised of the contrary (why decypher the data?)
    3. Don't think so. Since the data is encrypted anyway and wiping is relatively redudant.

    If you get some insights from ZA staff let us know!
