Rsync Truecrypt

Hmmm - I had expected that the truecrypt volume would exhibit far too much
entropy for rsync to do an efficient difference based I had
planned to run against the mounted tc volume.  I hadn't even planned to test
the throughput!  Should I reconsider?

Cheers, Frank.

  I have seen people say both that rsync can efficiently copy truecrypt
volumes.  I got it working once with deltacopy but as I’m trying to get it
to work from the command line, I cannot.  It just transfers the whole file.

  I am using –rvs –inplace switches.  Does anybody have any suggestions?
