comment Incremental (delta) backup of a encrypted data
As I mentioned in the comments, adding a 1MB Word file sends my computer into the 100% CPU hell when I'm trying to diff the containers. The problem is with the encryption, where every small change make a disproportional huge change. I was wondering if there is a better encryption method which will be easier on incremental backup.

Gareth, can you help me edit some other stuff? I'm writing an introduction for an article and I can use some help. ;)

Robert, as I mentioned below, adding a 14 bytes file ("hello world" of course) changes 22K bytes in the container. Adding a 1MB word file sends my diff application to 100% CPU hell, so I guess the change is a major one.

Robert, the OS is Currently windows. kobaltz, I'm using an automated backup solution (If I had to trust myself, I would backup for a week and then forget about it.

comment Incremental (delta) backup of a encrypted data
Thanks for the reply. I tried to add a small text file ("Hello world") to an encrypted container and it changed 22K bytes. Not such a small change for a 14 bytes file.

Thank you for your quick reply. See my comment to Robert. I use automated backup tool and I can't keep my container mounted all the time, since it defeats the whole purpose of encryption.

comment Lost a partition after Windows 7 recovery (How can I rewrite the partition table?)
Thank you for your detailed answer, I will try your solution soon. Just wondering, can clonezilla be used instead of "dd"? And about Smart boot manager - Its page says that the project is dead for a long time, do you know any other good boot loader which is still alive?
