Hard disks store an error detection and correction code with the
data, and usually fail less subtly and regardless of the content of
the data. Whereas failure to motherboard, processor and power supply
tend to show themselves in very data-intensive scenarios such as
asymmetric cryptography. I think main memory less so, because the crypto
is likely completely contained in the cache.
 Although if the embedded processor for instance would start failing,
it's possible to damage data with consistent checksums. Note that SATA
communication between disk and computer also includes a checksum.
I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
