There are numerous backup solutions out there for Windows and they come in many different forms. From a file copy and/or syncing tool like SyncBackSE to whole hard drive backup utilities based on Volume Shadow Copy like Acronis TrueImage or Norton Ghost to block level copy tools like dd. Each of these solutions offers different pros and cons versus the "Windows Backup and Restore Center" feature built-in to Windows Vista and Windows 7. I am not interested in discussing alternative backup solutions here however, as that has already been covered by numerous other questions.
There are two "types" of backup supported by the "Windows Backup and Restore Center"(WBRC):
- File backup (which Windows calls "Back Up Files")
- Full System Backup (which Windows calls "Complete PC Backup)
I am interested in a solution which supports either and/or both types of backup with WBRC.
- How can you use a TrueCrypt encrypted mount point as the destination for the built-in "Windows Backup and Restore Center" feature in Windows Vista and 7?
