dropbox with own encryption (Truecrypt)

Well I do love dropbox but I don’t like to put sensitive data on it because I simply don’t trust other companies taking care of my security. I use a open source program called truecrypt to encrypt my hard drives, usb sticks etc. and it’s doing a great job. After a little research in the Net I found out you can also use it with dropbox. You might think when you create an encrypted container that with each change in it it would transfer the whole file again. Luckily dropbox just transfers the changes instead of the whole file. But I red on somebodies blog that you need to make a small change in truecrypt.

Deactivate in Truecrypt->Settings->Preferences…->Preserve modification timestamp of file containers
