comment Working from home: ensuring file security?
I had intended to mention either using Truecrypt or a password protected RAR. As of now, I'm considering Truecrypt as a better option than RAR. So the question still is, as per my above comment: will Truecrypt ensure that the data is not stored temporarily anywhere else other than in the RAM (Windows and Linux)?

comment Working from home: ensuring file security?
I wasn't actually talking of compression in Truecrypt. I was asking if I access a Word file or maybe source code in a Truecrypt volume using Netbeans on my system, isn't there a possibility that Netbeans or Word would store temporary files in the temp folder? Or does all information being decrypted by Truecrypt stay only in the RAM and nothing goes into any temporary folder? Will there be any security difference in temporary file creation of this type if I'm working on Windows or Linux?

For 1, isn't it possible to access those files from Linux if you access the filesystem when on a dual boot machine? For 2, I think it's possible to crack those passwords by brute force. For 3, not all antiviruses can find all malicious programs. Need a more generic solution, but thanks :)

@Michael: I'm talking of a situation where I cannot be sure of whether a person using a document at a PC at home is aware/ignorant that their system has been compromised by spyware/malware/rootkit or maybe (if possible) a person who can remotely access their filesystem without their knowledge (maybe while they're not at their system). I'm considering any threat model, except packet sniffing. And yes, since you asked, I'm considering the possibility of someone having physical access to the system (being able to view temp files)

Ok, but I'm considering a situation where the file is on the home disk as a Truecrypt container or a password protected RAR. What would be a secure way of using the file in such a situation? Let's say VNC or VPN can't be used because of poor network connectivity (I really wouldn't want to bring in use of files across a network into this question, as that's not really the question I'm asking)

comment How to find the programming done for cells / worksheets in Excel, to be able to set precision?
Turns out that for question 2, it was because the "Format cells > Number" format was set to "Number", which was why even though the number was 15, it got displayed as 15.00. Would've worked out better if SolidEdge set the field to text instead of number.
