Encryption Question

I got overzealous and immediately installed the Suite on my new portable hard drive, forgetting that I was intending to install it in a TrueCrypt encrypted file container for protection of my saved passwords and such. Since a TrueCrypt volume is mounted like a drive, to which you can easily drag and drop files, I was wondering if I could simply move the PortableApps directory into the container and use it like normal, or would I have to reinstall?

Just Move It

You can just move it between drives or between virtual drives (like TrueCrypt's instance) and it'll work just as if you moved PCs and it got a new drive letter.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Admins Right.

Remembering of course that you will need admin rights on whatever PC you use, to use TrueCrypt, and therefore to use PortableApps (if they are in a TrueCrypt volume). If that isn't a problem for you, then great, you're all set!
