As the subject implies, I have a laptop with a TrueCrypt container that needs to be reliably backed-up onto an external drive. Can I be confident that SD will do this faithfully so the encrypted data is unaffected?

It's not something I've tested, but if the containers are closed and stored as regular files on the drive, I don't see why not.

The container appears to mount just fine from the backed-up drive, so I guess we are all good.
