I've created a Truecrypt vault.  Hoping I could use Multibit to define the location of the wallet within the Truecrypt vault.

Then upload the vault to dropbox as a backup.

The problem...

The truecrypt vault when mounted does not show up in the Multibit "open wallet" dialogue box.  Nowhere to be found.  It simply doesn't see the mounted truecrypt volume (BTW I'm on a MAC).

I was hoping I could mount the Truecrypt vault with the Multibit wallet saved in it.  Then load Multibit and have access to that wallet.

So far no luck...

What am I missing here?

I have been thinking of doing something similar but i have not actually tried it yet. watching this to see how it works out for you.

I was also thinking how useful it would be to have a client that contains the wallet within instead of a seperate file and the whole client is encrypted. similar to how truecrypt encrypts a container file. you would also be able to have a hidden wallets that use different pass keys. you get a different wallet depending on which keys you use to decrypt the client.

same as the hidden container idea in true crypt allow plausible deniability.  

i am not clever enough to code anything like this though.

good luck gettin multibit to read from you truecrypt container.
