(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Couldn't backup a 100GB virtual machine image to a truecrypt encrypted external drive because the drive was formatted Fat32. Turned out you can convert it to NTFS while mounted without losing data:Accessories > right click on Command prompt>convert x: /fs:ntfsAfter that a normal copy to the external drive worked fine. No data loss!
