after testing
Authored by: davidnorton on Jun 04, '03 11:02:04PM
Here is what I have figured out from my testing (I just bought a Lexar 128MB JumpDrive at for $30 after a $10 rebate):

  • I really needed to clean out my keychain file! Half of it was stuff I didn't need anymore.
  • I kept the primary keychain on the hard disk and keep the 'family' passwords on it, since they probably wouldn't be happy if they couldn't check email when I'm not around with my drive.
  • I could eject the USB drive by dragging it to the trash only if there were no applications open that used that keychain. Once I quit those, I can eject the drive and unplug it. I didn't even need to lock the keychain.
  • When the drive was not mounted, going to a website that normally grabbed a password from my keychain instead just displayed the page normally. When checking email in Mail it asked me for my email password.

    No new files have been created in my keychains folder. This is probably due to keeping the primary keychain (see above).

    If I login with the drive plugged in, I can't nicely eject the drive until I logout.

    Better to plug the drive in after I log in.
