Now that's thoughtful.
I once had one of those "Good morning, you're outta here, get lost" conversations. There was no rentacop, but there was also no chance to pull portfolio pieces off the computer either and no way to recreate them at home.
These days, the minute I finish something that is non-proprietary and portfolio-worthy, I email a copy to myself. My current job is both pleasant and (I believe) secure, but once laid-off, twice shy. Besides, it makes it easy for me to cut through the half-finished projects and line up the finished ones for the annual review.
