    Very true, although I find it funny these days that I have to give more identification of myself at the bank to make a deposit than to withdraw, what, it's like someone else is really going to go wire money in? The Nigerians with that settlement/estate payoff?

    Windows 10 Pro,

    My thoughts are this, you can keep anything on your HOME PC as long as you keep it secure. I sure wouldn't keep documents like that on a laptop.

    I agree! In fact, I'd immediately Copy any important files to a USB Thumb drive and/or Copy them to a CD or DVD for archival storage then delete from the HDD including emptying the Recycle Bin. Some folks even use a program that does a secure wipe of free space on the HDD although in most cases simply defragmenting with move enough files around to cover what was there [maybe TRIM on an SSD].

    I should also mention that when I said I keep them on my home computer, I meant a tower that is wired to my network. I don't keep anything like that on my laptop, just in case I leave it somewhere or it were to be stolen.
