Computing devices are frequently used for multiple applications – a user might share a device for work
and personal computing. This sharing creates a wealth of data security vulnerabilities; the actions
performed on a device when used for personal computing may compromise sensitive corporate data.
Complete separation and isolation of the data location will eliminate any vulnerability of this data. A
computing device with two physical drives and a hardware toggle switch will promote more separation
between business and personal use by isolating data, while sharing the same hardware. This toggle switch
will allow the user to switch between bootable drives, sending power to only one of the drives at a time.
