Backup of keystore (DCPP)

    Now I have everything working great with encrypting my external
    harddisks with DriveCrypt Plus Pack, but of course I'm as anxious as
    anyone about something going wrong and losing my precious data...

    I'm not absolutely sure that I have a full understanding of how
    everything works, but it seems to me, that the Keystore file is pretty
    important. I can't see how I could read one of my disks without the
    keystore - but on the other hand I suppose it isn't used with the
    preboot authentication, since the dks-file is stored on the drive
    itself...? And there's also the fact, that the keystore doesn't contain
    my passwords, so it can't be that important - or can it?

    The point is that if the keystore is crucial for accessing my encrypted
    data, I want to take a backup of the keystore and save on some external
    media, but I can't find any support on this subject anywhere!

    Can anyone explain to me how this keystore-business works, and if I
    should make a backup copy of the keystore?
