 Using Encrypted Containers

Well written article on how to protect your files using encryption, without having to encrypt each and every one of them.

"Once my goals were set, I went about researching my options and evaluating ideas. I finally settled on using an encrypted "container" that could function like any other storage device, but only when needed. To prevent data loss, it would be backed up to my home server. On the home server, the same technology would be used to protect my backups and where I centrally could burn a CD or DVD for off-site storage."
