    Acronis True Image Rescue Disk In Lieu Of Bart PE Disk?

    I'd like to use TrueCrypt, but I am unable to make a Bart PE rescue
    disk. Too many errors and too complicated. I hardly understand the
    instructions.

    Somewhere I heard that the Acronis Rescue Disk would suffice in the
    event something went south with my system on an encrypted TrueCrypt
    disk. Is this correct?

    I'm using XP Pro with SP3, which is totally up to date with MS updates.

    I certainly don't want to risk encrypting my drive without a rescue disk.

    Any TrueCrypt users in here who might know the answer?

    I'm not sure what help the Acronis Rescue Disk would be if the
    encrypted hard drive won't, for example, boot. Acronis has no means
    of decrypting any "working" portion of the file structure.

    If you were to create an image of your TrueCrypt encrypted hard drive
    while it is stable and working with Acronis then you could use the
    Acronis Rescue Disk to copy the good image over one that may have gone
    bad. Making an image of an encrypted hard drive requires that you
    use the sector-by-sector method WITHOUT compression. Any compression
    on an encrypted image makes the image worthless.

    This is farily straight forward with Acronis. Obviously this requires
    a back up media at least as large as the computer hard disk.

    Then if your encrypted hard drive stops working you can use the
    Acronis rescue disk with the backup image to recover to a working
    system. This requires that you make images at regular intervals so
    that recovering from a bad system brings you back to a system that is
    not too old.
