I know this is basic, but I'm a little confused. I'm hearing different things from different people. I'm hoping someone can clear this up for me.
Here's the scenario: I've got a machine running XP pro, users must login to use it, hard drive is formatted NTFS.
Here's the question: if the machine is stolen, can the files be accessed? I understand you'd have to hack the password in order to get on the machine, but would it be possible to take the hard drive out, set it as a slave on another machine and access the files that way?
