What if I have the porn stored in a vm on my machine? Do those guys even know what a vm is? What if I have a totally unsuspecting laptop and I'm actually trying to smuggle porn by store in on a disc partition and clearing the disc information from fstab (or windows equivalent so as not to be suspicious)?
