The drawback with my TrueCrypt method is having to create files of fixed sizes. You either have a lot of empty space tied up or you’re bursting at the seams and can’t expand a volume. And you’re dealing with some large files, perhaps with additional risk of an entire volume being more easily corrupted? I had managed this ok in the past, but I always agonized over the size of volumes to create for backups, since it’s hard to predict future requirements there. I know TrueCrypt has ways of encrypting entire devices, but I’ve been hesitant to go down that road.
