'''Serpent''' is an [[encryption]] algorithm designed by Ross Anderson, Eli Biham and Lars Knudsen as a candidate for the Advanced Encryption Standard [[AES]] competition, where it got second place with 59 votes ([[Rijndael]] got 86 votes, and was selected by [[NIST]] as the [[AES]]).

Serpent and Rijndael are somewhat similar. The main difference is that Rijndael has fewer rounds (10, 12 or 14 (depending on key size) compared to 32 for Serpent), hence it is faster. Arguably, Serpent is more secure.

Volume Shadow Copy Service

Windows has included the Volume Shadow Copy Service in it's releases since Windows XP. The Shadow Copy Service creates differential backups periodically to create restore points for the user. Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate editions include tools to work with and manage the Volume Shadow Copy Service, including the ability to mount shadow volumes on disk images.
