DFS-hidden data can be found by Microsoft Vista, Word and Google Desktop

You may be in denial if you think a Deniable File System (DFS) will fully secure your data.  So says Byte and Switch today, based on a study by British Telecom’s Bruce Schneier and a team of researchers from the University of Washington.  They were able to expose DFS-hidden data with Microsoft Vista, Word, and Google desktop.  

Fully ecrypted hard drives are not affected

Don’t worry –  this chink in data security does not apply to drives using Full Disk Encryption (FDE) .
