Truecrypt Rescue Disk

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Bit of a problem. I've encrypted my netbook using Truecrypt. As it doesn't have a CD drive, I bypassed the rescue disk option. I'm quite good with remembering things like that, but should I permanently decrypt the drive and start over, maybe actually buy an external CD drive to plug in?

So I guess what I'm asking, in a nutshell, is assuming I remember the passphrase, is there any other situation in which I would need the recovery disk?

Second, I'm right in thinking that, once I enter the password and load windows, I can easily de-crypt the entire drive (bringing it back to a standard non-encrypted drive) by loading Truecrypt and selecting "Permanently decrypt" the selected drive?

Also, can I use programs such as Eraser to securely delete things when using the computer?

I've heard that I shouldn't defragment the drive, but will securely deleting things be ok?
