I occasionally take my home pc into my work-place for updates and maintenance. I have personal info on my hard drive which I'd like to keep private.

Before taking my pc in, I'd like to know what measures I should take to safe-guard my personal info.

Your workplace...is the only authority for rules/procedures governing the use of computers.

You cannot just take your computer in because you want to.

In fact, it would simply be a lot easier if you had someone from work...come to your home.

I should have been clearer in my OP which I apologize for.

The pc I use at home is COMPANY-owned b/c I often work via remote-access. I manage my own updates, general maintenance, and security.

In this case, I'm taking the pc in to have IT update me from SP2 to SP3 (which I was having issues with.) That said, I have personal data ie, tax-related which I wish to keep private.

I will transfer my personal data to a flash drive and/or to a private folder app that someone suggested on another board.

I appreciate all of your comments :thumbsup:
