I want to let you know what happened because it’s the first time in all my 30+ years IT life. I used to have two volumes/partitions, C: for Windows OS and E: for my data. Thursday evening I started Windows Update (only for last November 2019 cumulative update, I update very often) and shut down when finished. On Friday morning when I booted up the system I saw the Windows nice landscape photo but when I tried to login the password box was not shown, no way to login. I tried ALL possible paths (safe mode, cmd, etc.). You know what I found? Using diskpart from cmd I found a single volume/partition that was the merge of my C: and my E: data !!! dir command was showing all my C and E directories and files together in one single volume/partintion! Windows was corrupted somehow, no gpt fix, efi rebuild was successful. My SD with my Windows 10 File History was not accessible (and useless since the OS itself was corrupted). All my data were there, there was no encryption so, without any login, I saved all my data on a usb hdd with robocopy (this is very bad on a security perspective, It’s enough to have a usb stick and some time with a pc available, e.g. lunch break, and you can stole the whole data from it, easy, no password, no hack. Either Bitlocker or, even better, a 3rd parties encryption after UEFI layer is recommended. But this time I was happy I did't have bitlocker). The only solution to bring back to work the laptop was to boot from the Recovery Drive (lucky I did and had) and then restore a full image (lucky I did and had) with the old Windows 7 Backup Tool and finally robocopy back all my data (then upgrade again but not to the latest cumulative, better to wait a bit, a fix might come, then backup again). One additional note, since during the restore process I chose not to format all partitions from scratch, now I have one single partition C: with both OS and Data, I’m leaving Windows decision be the final one on how my volumes have to be on my laptop 😊

Password Managers: LastPass vs: Windows Password Manager
I recently had an event, where I could not log into my BofA account on line. I had had this happen before with my Verizon account, and after doing some searching I found the culprit was the interaction between the websites and Microsoft's Password Manager and LastPass. Every once in a while they would not play nicely and get along. If I updated one or the other and inadvertently forgot to update the other, well, you get the picture. What I found yesterday though was really troubling. While making sure that my password in Microsoft' Password Manager was correct, I saw multiple accounts with multiple login credentials, that I haven't used in quite some time, and in fact should have been updated. But multiples? troubling to say the least. My Verizon was the worst with 5 different sets of credentials. Once I cleared all but the ones that I needed, all has been well. Same with BofA. LastPass has really begun to annoy me too. When I log into a site, it nags me with a screen that asks if I want to update that login info.... Seriously! Every single time! And every time on my Android phone if highlight something that need input it asks if I want to auto fill with LastPass. Sheesh! I've been using LastPass since Windows 8, and the

Storage service encryption works similarly to BitLocker on Windows: data is encrypted beneath the file system level. Because data is encrypted beneath the Azure file share's file system, as it's encoded to disk, you don't have to have access to the underlying key on the client to read or write to the Azure file share.
