  1. Thank you for your very detailed answers. Regarding #3 you are right. The cache file reports a size which is not equal to the "size on disk". I came to the conclusion that CloudDrive is not really the tool I need. But I may try CloudDrive again when Amazon CloudDrive is available in my country and the provider is stable. Right now I am looking into BitLocker+DrivePool and it seems promising
  2. Hi, I want to encrypt my HDDs and pool them together. I use TrueCrypt for encryption, but since DrivePool does not support TrueCrypt volumes, I want to give CloudDrive a try and replace TrueCrypt. I created an encrypted CloudDrive on every disk using the Local Disk Provider. I am doing it this way because I want to use SnapRAID later on to create parity for the disks. During my testings with CloudDrive, several questions arose: 1. Is there some way to store the header of the encrypted volume in case it gets overridden, like there is with TrueCrypt? Or would such a function be pointless in CloudDrive? 2. Is it possible to mount the encrypted drives with a command line interface or do I have to mount them separately by hand after every reboot? 3. Why does CloudDrive create a cache for local drives? I tested this in a VM using disks of 1GB and 10GB size. Every time a new drive is created, some cache folder is created too with the same size as the disks, although I set "Local cache size" to none or only 10MB. Is this a bug or oversight or is this intended? I want to use disks with several TB and don't have the space for such large caches. 4. Maybe the way I want to use CloudDrive is not really the purpose of the tool. Is there some other way to achieve the following things: - encrypt several disks separately - disks can be external and not connected to the computer all the time - decrypt them via a command line interface and not "by hand" each time - mount them to a NTFS mount point - be able to pool them together using DrivePool Is Windows BitLocker maybe able to do that?
