At any moment, your computer could crash, and you will need to hand it over, unedited, to a repair person. If weird filenames freak out that person and the police, they can open your files, a court has ruled. Ugh.
An Alabama man got 10 years in jail after taking his computer in for repair at Best Buy, where red flags were raised over his "very explicit" filenames, according to Kashmir Hill at Forbes. The police were called, opened the suspicious files and found child porn, just as in past computer repairs ending in child porn charges. Chalk up one for the good guys: The man is doing 10 years in prison.
