comment Can we create a dynamic sized TrueCrypt container on Mac OS X?
What if we installed some sort of NTFS write support on the Mac system? Might TC then be able to create the dynamic NTFS container?

comment Getting local POP mailbox messages into Gmail
So, I would first configure an IMAP account within TB with my Gmail info and then just drag the old (POP) mails over to the Gmail IMAP account and they should get loaded on Gmail? Do you know of the dates will be preserved?

comment File format of encrypted file
@Synetech, any thoughts on the hexIdentifier being the same for different files that use the same password? p.s just talked to the dev, they say the hexIdentifier is not part of the encryption and that they will remove it from future versions.

@Synetech, I'm confused again. The latest edit to your answer indicates that the password IS likely encrypted with Blowfish (rather than being a home grown encoding as originally thought). Do you still feel that it would be realistic to recover the password from the encrypted string?

@Synetech, So the problem in short is that the data may be encrypted with Blowfish, but the password is stored in such a way that potentially makes it possible to discover (although no method for discovering the password has actually been proven here). I guess I will point the devs to this thread.

@Synetech, The analysis that you published in your answer. Maybe we should pull it until the dev has a chance to make improvements.

@Synetech, not sure what you mean. Should the analysis be pulled until the dev has a chance to make the password storage stronger?

Thought: are the results of this analysis in conflict with 'responsible disclosure?'

Interesting analysis. Hopefully the developer can fix this.
