True crypt has an interesting feature. You allocate encrypted 'drives' which occupy large files (the unused part is randomized). In addition to the primary encryption key, you can create a secondary key which encrypts data in the 'unused' portion of the file which is pretty much indistinguishable from the algorithmically randomized filler.

The primary key will unlock the 'active' data, there is no way for anyone to know that another key will reveal a second repository.

[It has been suggested that it's a good diversion to encrypt in the primary mild soft porn or somesuch, anyone searching your drive will assume that's what you are hiding.]

that's interesting. haven't used true crypt much as it was a bit of a pain for me when I tried, but that's a neat feature.

I have to say that the government of the USA is ignoring the global market. If they force MS down this path this will lead to other countries enshrining local control only in law which would support local companies hosting offerings being more popular. Globally. Dare I say it? Team America: World Police.

...and then there is Net Neutrality. Ah, lets ruin the Internet just before we let go of the reins. Grrrr.
