    Speedy Truecrypt encrypt of laptops

    Is there a way of bypassing the need to make/test the recovery disc when encrypting the whole drive on a laptop?

    regards
    Simon

    I couldn't see one at a quick glance, although testing it seems like quite a good idea so I'm not sure skipping it is wise...

    neither am I so its prob a good idea that it isn't (although I'm sure if I ever need it - it work work anyway - thats the nature of rescue resources )

    there is a switch for the truecrypt format command that skips the writing phase of the disc and just makes an ISO. IIRC the switch is /n

    I have to say we use the vcd tool from MS to mount the ISO to test then Truecrypt would continue, nice to know there's a switch to turn off the step.
