I created a 200GB TrueCrypt container, and thinking that you should be able to mount it from anywhere, I transfered it to my external hard drive. Then I tried to mount it, but TrueCrypt won't even display my external hard drive in the folder list. However I did notice a "select device" button. That to me seems like TrueCrypt wants to treat the whole hard drive as a container. Am I correct in saying that?
If so, then I have to move all the other files I have backed up in there to some other storage device(s). This is getting to be ridiculous. I love TrueCrypt, but it is starting to get annoying and hard to work with.
