    Hi there, I think I have have it down pat, but just for my sanity, can someone confirm, that if my os fails, all that I need to gain access to the data stored in encrypted files by truecrypt, is that i re-install the software, and as long as I know the password, the data will still be readable? There is nothing I need to backup to be able to use the encrypted data is there, like with windows xp own encryption, where you need to backup your keys and stuff?

    Cheers Greg

    Sorry for the bump, but just want to know for sure. I am also curious, with regards to encrypted data, can you just copy it and put backups on other drives with no problems as well? ie, have multiple copies of the virtual volumes which are encrypted? Mainly in particular to to Truecrypt.

    Cheers Greg

    No problem. If you have the file and the pass phase.

    Cool, i just wanted a confirmation. So Password is all that matters, and the data itself - lol.
    It's just with windows own ntfs encryption, you need to backup your key and all that crap. I wanted to ensure that same does not apply in anyway to this program.

    Cheers
