I have created a 100GB truecrypt file data.tc
I intend to use a backup software and set daily auto incremental backups. .
On day 1 (Aug 1), I created a full backup data.tc and scheduled daily incremental backups everyday (from day 2 onwards the backup software will be creating incremental backups).
On day 4 (Aug 4), I added fileday4.txt into data.tc (I mounted data.tc and put fileday4.txt into data.tc)
On day 5 (Aug 5), I added fileday5.txt into data.tc (I mounted data.tc and put fileday5.txt into data.tc)
On day 6 (Aug 6), I edited fileday5.txt (in data.tc) and added some text
Will the incremental backup on day 7 (Aug 7) contain the fileday4.txt and fileday5.txt with accurate data?
Lets say I recover data.tc from my backup of day 7 (Aug 7), will I see fileday4.txt and fileday5.txt inside the data.tc when I mount data.tc?
My question is does Acronis or Macrium Reflect backup the changes I made in Truecrypt file container?
I am asking this because I always see the data.tc as 100GB size and it does not change in size, so I was wondering if the backup software could "see" the files inside data.tc when I add or make changes and make backup to it. Or does the backup software always see the data.tc as a 100GB size file and assume that the file has not changed, thus the backup software does not make new backups to data.tc even I have added files to it.
