Thanks for the post.

I found that BackTrack is a bit better for this purpuse. I had a nightmare figuring out how to modify presistency.

Just adding my 0.00002 BTC

I run OSX.  My security is:

1 - Create small truecrypt volume ~ 30mb
2 - Mount truecrypt volume
3 - Install (first time) and run (every time after that) the Bitcoin client from truecrypt volume.
4 - When not using Bitcoin client, simply close application.
5 - After Bitcoin client is closed, dismount truecrypt volume, which then is a highly encrypted file containing wallet.dat and all other Bitcoin app files.

I'd be interested to hear anyone's thoughts on this.  It is very simple, and allows me to store my encrypted file anywhere as a backup online.

I use the same setup. The 'truecrypt container' is synced using drobox so, it's encrypted and always synced and "online" for be to download and open (using my pass-phrase) at all times.

If you have less than 2.000-5.000 BTC I don't understand all this madness described in this post...

I think i have a pretty secure wallet setup. I have Google Drive set up on my computer, of which the account has a long complex password. I have a networked drive from Google Drive displayed on my computer. I have TrueCrypt set up on the drive, encrypting my wallet. I then use MultiBit to connect to the Wallet. I want to run MultiBit from the drive, all under the TrueCrypt encryption. I'm just too lazy.

I feel like this is obvious, but I can not send coin to the address on the hard disk when it is not running on the computer right? whenever you wanna make a deposit, you load up the disk, re install btc client again, deposit your coins from one wallet to the savings wallet, and then copy it back on the disk?

If you reinstall the btc client you may end up with a whole new wallet. You would need to restore your wallet.dat file in the AppData directory. If you have a savings wallet, it doesn't need to be online to receive Bitcoin. The ONLY times you ever need internet with an offline wallet are to keep an updated blockchain, and Send (purchase, donate, transfer, etc) Bitcoins. You do not need to be online to receive them. But when you are online, you will receive them when your local blockchain file is updated.
