    hi

    can i create a container using more then 1 generated keyfile?

    for example , create a container using 4 generated keyfiles?


    should be more safe hypothetically,seeing one generated keyfile is enough

    thanks
    cheers

    yes you can I use 2 generated key files for my true crypt archives.

    I would think 4 would be possible.

    Make sure you back up your keyfiles, otherwise if any of them change you can be permanently locked out.

    if the max is 64bytes , is there a sense to use more keys files ?

    i mean i can use 4 generated key files , but tc will use always 64bytes

    Re: but

    The only security in using more than one key file is that an attacker would have to Know your password and get access to each (and all) key files. Unless you are storing them in separate devices I would just use one.
