Backup and restore desktop settings in truecrypt

Hello everyone,

First to all sorry for my poor english. I'm installing and configuring truecrypt on windows 7 home premium. Truecrypt as you know is use for maintain secure the data for the user so i implemented truecrypt in the partition D. I have installed windows 7 in the drive C. I moved the folder desktop, documents, pictures and downloads of windows 7 to this drive D that belongs now to truecrypt. My problem comes when i restart the system i can not keep the taskbar with my shortcuts of chrome, thunderbird and others programs. I found out ins this forum some tools to restore and backup the taskbar but it doesn't work well because at the end i see the shortcuts but it doesn't work any one of them.

Please help,

The shorcuts (on C: drive) will not work because the targets (documents, pictures, download folders) reside in the encrypted volume on D: drive. You need to mount the encrypted volume after booting the computer in order for the shortcuts to access the targets.
