  1. Delete file in password-protected archive without entering password?


    I just noticed that files within an already password-protected WinRAR (.rar) archive can be deleted without entering the password first. You have to enter the password to open, copy or anything else for the file, but straight up deleting is okay? Is this the normal functionality of archives? Doesn't seem very logical

    Sorry is this is outside the scope of these forums or not in the right forum but I am puzzled about this.

    Thanks

    :)

    How to set up password to start Outlook 2010?

    Well in that case you can use Protect EXE to password protect the Outlook EXE itself. So you have to enter a password every time you start Outlook.

    Password protected Harddisk

    Hi!

    According to ATA specifications every ATA harddisk (PATA,SATA) must have the possibility be protected by a password - the bios must be compatible but most new ones are.
    A nice progam HD-X Lock makes it possible to install passwords to ones harddisks so that ever time the PC is shut down and is started again a usb-stick or CD-Rom or floppy with this program has to be inserted to provide a password. Otherwise the Harddisk apears to be empty / formatted. A very nice thing if one is a pirate.
    There is a user password and a master password. With the free version of HD-X Lock one can only set the user password - with the full version also the master password which is important cause the factory set master password in all seagte harddisks is well know (seagate+25 spaces) and samsung has no master password at all installed.
    With laptops that have a harddisk password setting in the bios one can not use HD-X Lock because when you set a password with HD-X Lock it is internally scrambled and you can not get the harddisk open without putting the lapstops harddisk into a desktop PC.
