ENCRYPTED DISK PATCH
Version 1.2 (DEMO)
Copyright (C) 2006-2008
By Rudolph R. Loew
The Encrypted Disk Patch Software patches the BIOS and Windows 98/98SE/ME to
provide full Disk Encryption. All files on the Hard Drive(s) are Encrypted
as they are written and Decrypted as they are read so no unencrypted data is
ever placed on the Hard Drive(s). If all of the Hard Drive(s) are Encrypted,
all Temporary Files, Cache Files, History Files, Swap Files, Slack Space,
etc. are Encrypted as well as all Application Files leaving no opportunity
for anyone to recover sensitive data. Laptops with all Hard Drives Encrypted
would no longer be a security threat, as no data or programs could be
recovered from trem, if they were stolen.
Windows 95 Release 2 (See Note Below)
Windows 98, 98SE or ME.
Motherboard IDE Controller recognized by the Default ESDI_506.PDR Port Driver

High Capacity Disk Patch from Rudolph R. Loew
BIOS support for hard drives >137GB (48-Bit LBA) or
Large Hard Drive Version of the Encrypted Disk Boot Manager
NOTE: Some documentation and utilities may report this limit as 128GB.
WARNING: Some BIOSes have defective support for 48-Bit LBA. Rearranging
Drives may cause a previously working system to fail. Verify
support using 48BITLBA.EXE for all Drive arrangements you plan to
use. In particular, VIA EPIA BIOSes before 07/05 may claim to
support 48-Bit LBA, and will show the full size of the Drive, but
will not actually support the Drive if it is not the Primary Master.
Users of VIA EPIA motherboards should contact the Author to obtain
a Patched BIOS if needed.
NOTE: Windows 95 performance has not been tested. If you are using the
original version, upgrade the existing Disk Driver with REMIDEUP.EXE
available from Microsoft at:
before Installing the Patch.
