    Situation :

    I made a full c-drive backup (with Acronis & Shadowprotect desktop) from a running system, encrypted with full disk encryption (Truecrypt 6.2) (so unencrypted backups) .

    The backups are stored on an external USB drive.

    1)What will happen to my system when I restore the backups on a running system ?

    (for example like when i messed up some settings, and i want to restore back quickly)

    2) what will happen if i need to restore BEFORE booting with a bootable CD.

    (for example a virus infection that makes the system unbootable).

    Do i need to encrypt my whole C-drive again (everytime) ? (long process) ?

    Or is it in some way directly encrypted when i boot up ?

    Or does it just messes up my PC and makes it unbootable ?

    Is it better to make backups (with boot CD) from the encrypted volume ?

    Is this possibell ?

    Does this makes restoring much easier ?

    Thanks beforehand !
