I'm bugging around with this for three days now. Just for your information: I recently bought a 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD and two 1TB Western Digital Caviar Green hard disk drives. I originally planned to have them set up this way: OS + (unused) user folders on SSD, "real" user folder on one HDD linked to corresponding libraries. Both HDD (+eventually the SSD) should be encrypted with TrueCrypt. So far so good - when logging in, TrueCrypt recognizes the connected hard disk drives and asks me for the passwords. The drives (NTFS formatted) get mounted correctly ("E:" and "F:") and I can read/write to them like expected.
But here comes the problem: I can neither backup files FROM nor TO one of the TrueCrypt-mounted devices. It seems that Windows Backup and Restore can only backup from/to devices, which are listed in the disk manager. And sadly, the TrueCrypt devices aren't... Just the underlying hard disk drives, which are displayed as unformatted or "RAW".
Does anyone have a solution for this particular problem or any other suggestion how to organize my file/backup structure? My only requirement is, that both files in use and backups have to be encrypted and the access is easy. (Don't want to mess around for hours everytime windows boots just to access my files...)
Appreciate any help/ideas/suggestions.
