ok, Point well taken. I still however fail to see the wisdom in giving
an option to one group of users but not the other. As long as we don't
get into depth about what encryption is I don't see where that would
confuse the user. We also have a partitioning tool, and there are users
out there that don't understand partitions. So we are not going to say
"We are now going to scramble your harddrive and make it unreadable" the
same as we do not say " Now cutting your harddrive into virtual
pieces ..."
