[Discuss] TrueCrypt on a network Drive

You are a great group, thanks you. ?This user is extra paranoid and would like her network drive encrypted. ?She is the only one mounting and using the drive. ? I saw the option for backup the volume header, does it work in case of a disaster? ?I will test the other two program you suggested.

It should survive a reboot (but no guarantees).? It should fail to mount simultaneously on a second machine (hopefully).? There are some ways to get screwed if you're not diligent about this...

If you're intending to pass the volume back and forth between different computers, I would suggest using a different solution, such as encfs4win, or boxcryptor.
