Thumb drive.
Why not just use true crypt and keep every single file you think is critical on that thumb drive. You can even default set your MyDocuments and force the drive type to a specific drive letter, so its transparent when you boot.
Bonus points because if your laptop is stolen, odds are you still have the drive in your pocket or wallet. Don't think you can cram a thumb drive in your fat wallet. Try this one on for size.

I personally experienced a true miracle.

I was healed in a week of a broken collar bone after a youth group prayed over me. That event has carried me through many a tough time.

You can't put it in a lab, and you can't force the experiment on God, but the proof is there if your willing to look at it.

Sorry about you loss, and God Bless

Or they are waiting to give God a chance to preform a miracle.

There are all kinds of last minute rescue stories in the Bible. Jonah and the whale, the parting of the Red Sea, even the bringing back from death of Lazarus.

Who but those without faith would assume that it's a lack of faith that motivates them?

The way I see it, they just gave this software, license free.
That means no copyright, no protection of their supposed intellectual property associated with it. Basically if the code can be reverse engineered, viewed, uncompiled, or whatever it should be just fine and dandy for anyone to make and publish whatever they will with it.
This should also include any software that they own that is required to run this little present.
Its probably useless code anyway, but if companies that released stuff like this risked loosing rights to everything attached to the 'gifted' software in question this practice would stop.
