Doesn't matter. If you try brute force, the device self destructs.

In short: to break the good machine-made password with brute force, you would need more time than Universe existence.[/quote]
Assuming you don't have access to a quantum computer - in which case the numbers come down considerably.[/quote]

That's even if you could develop a quantum computer without electricity which I'd argue borders on impossible,which if you did have electricity you could go straight to fed-tech which could access the file reasonably successfully. Surely that would've had tools for this situation..
