Bitcoin : Getting a usb flash drive repaired that has my life savings on it. Security concern?


I am super dumb I know. No backups at all. My life savings is stored in electrum on a tails drive. Drive is broken but a repair service can fix it. I am worried that my password though relatively strong could be cracked by someone competent enough. Thereby giving access to my persistence and all my money.

That or they can break into the persistence some other way. The guy fixing is going to clone the drive and copy the data to a new one so it can be used again but I am sure he will keep a copy for himself just in case the drive he gives me malfunctions.

Anyone know if my paranoia is justified? Is tails safe enough that there is no chance this guy is going to get in? What if he is sus about the drive using tails and gives to the police who i know he works with to help with data recovery? Will they break in? If they do I would bet the coins magically vanish.

I never will make this mistake again.
