Default how to backup an unmounted Truecrpty drive to carbonite, nine, etc

Is this even possible? If the drive is mounted, I can back it up to a network drive, but its not encrypted. I want to backup already encrypted files.

I cant seem to find any info on doing this with truecrypt, is there a better solution.

p.s., as much as nine, mozy, or carbonite say they encrypt my data, its always safer to make sure, than to take their word for it.

If you use a container file then you can backup that container. If you've encrypted the entire drive then I don't think you can since those services backup files not drives.

so I guess I can make the container the same size as the drive, then move my files over.

if so, that makes more sense.

Yeah unless those services have a limit on the size of any individual file size.

Even if they don't there might be a problem with backing up a file of several hundred gigabytes.
