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?
