Archiving encrypted containers (Best Crypt)

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Use.Netuser.de, Jun 18, 2004.

  1. Hi Group

    Having a broadband connection I use Jetico Best Crypt to store my personal stuff in
    a 50MB virtual container which like all my other files are [should be] backed up to
    an external drive using Second Copy. The problem is that the container is not copied
    as Windows XP tells me the container is in use by another application. I exit Best
    Crypt (actually kill from taskbar) ensuring nothing is mounted same result. Actually
    I can only delete the container from inside Best Crypt or from Safe Mode so a simple
    copy and paste doesn't work either.

    Q. Should I be mounting this virtual container then using Second Copy to copy all
    the files etc then unmounting?
    Q. Is there a file attribute I can change or something so the virtual container can
    be copied?

    Note: I also use NAT and a firewall for protection.

    Thanks

    Ok, dumb as it may seem I found a solution. Run Best Crypt, right click container,
    select delete container (backup copy), delete container and then manually copy and
    paste to archive location. Pain in the ass but needs must.
