Nah, that won't be a "problem" for quite some time. tongue.gif I've just been going into activity waves on the site every other day or so so it doesn't feel like it's consuming me like it was last year. I've also spent some time laying the groundwork for my longer-term plans for this site and hopefully I'll be all done with that by the end of the year. I'm not leaving, mind you, I'm just planning on something... different, something that hasn't been done by anyone here before, at least in an official capacity. As to what'll end up happening, you'll definitely know when you see it, this is something I want shown off only when it's done.

Man, now you got me excited!

I have been currently been busy on making plans on building my car myself...something that has been done by many before me in an official capacity. It is something I want shown off only when it's done. biggrin.gif

Hi everyone! Sorry for my terrible english!
A few days ago I build a pc and I put inside an SSD Samsung 830 64Gb...6Gb/s
In the SSD I have installed Windows 7 32 bit and some little programs.
I've done all the usefull stuff (no auto defrag, yes trim, ecc ecc).
Then I make some test...and in my opinion their not so good.

This is my test: http://img545.imageshack.us/img545/8815/immaginethe.png

Any suggestions?

Thank you all!

Filippo

From what I understand only the Enterprise version comes with 256-bit AES encryption, and the only difference between the Enterprise version and the consumer retail or OEM is the firmware. So it's in my interest to find a way to crack the vendor specific firmware protection and flash it with a copy of the enterprise firmware. If anyone has done this please post your experience.

Otherwise I need to find a way to encrypt this drive, and from what I've been reading Truecrypt will turn this state of the art device into a 1st generation SSD so I'm in need of a good solution to data security

I would forget about native/built in encryption and use TC instead. I use it on all of my drives/systems and it's working flawless.
cheers.

I've read some people claim because the 830 uses wear level TrueCrypt can be cracked, don't know if that's true or not. Then the other concern is performance, have you benchmarked before and after TC?

who claims? give me a link? It's bull at least at he normal user level. for the agency's or hardcore hackers, who knows.
There is a benchmark after TCing my system somewhere in this thread or the other one from Sean. look it up.
I didn't notice any problems and the system (games) is flying.
cheers.

found it:

Head to wilders forum and TC forum to find out more about system encryption.
cheers.

edit:
read TC PDF manual, you'll learn alot from it and read these as a start:

http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1717153

http://superuser.com/questions/358122/using-truecrypt-software-encryption-with-an-ssd


the only people that would MAYBE be able to crack your TC, are the agency's but even that is very questionable AFAIK, at least at this moment. So if you are not a ter**ist you have nothing to worry about. Affcourse there are ruled and guidelines that you need to follow and use proper pass and/or keys to get a proper protection. If I use a dictionary word(s), dates, etc. like some do, it's a waste of time LOL.
Also there are a few ways to get into you machine that include dirty maid, using firewire port while the machine is on, etc. but I would say that's very unlikely if you are a normal user like myself just worried about stolen equipment so someone don't get all my passes to email, forums, documents, etc.

My advice to you and anyone else is to read upon TC before using it cos there are people showing up every day crying they lost their data or similar just cos they didn't read up on the tool they started using.
TC is a great piece of software IMHO.

cheers.
