I see, IT could get, AND IS EVEN WORSE:
NOTHING essentially has changed:
Starting up a pc that has a “protected” folder later with Linux, Windows-PE (or any other OS)
THIS FOLDER IS NOT PROTECTED AT ALL !!
…this means, just a so called “filter driver” is (an must be) present in the source (host) system.
if not, those folders are fully visible and accessible.
THE ONLY GOOD is, that some time ago WISE added the ability to encrypt the data.
But waht is it worth, if your can “buy” a revorey key if you get access to the registration data used to register at WISE…
