Windows 7: Using Truecypt & Second Copy to backup media

21 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 64 & Ubuntu 64
Using Truecypt & Second Copy to backup media

I have already made my "Outer Volume" on my back up HDD with Truecrypt & now using Second Copy to copy my main media HDD to my backup HDD.

Once I copy the data & am then going to create the "hidden volume" option Truecrypt offers.

How will this sync up with Second copy?

If it makes a difference in syncing second copy I would also like to set up the main media HDD the same way with the Outer volume & hidden volume options. So keeping it a perfect encrypted sync if possible.
