Hi, if I'm running bitcoin client from inside a truecrypt drive how do i get it to run the .bitcoin/database on the truecrypt drive and not on my home folder?

Thanks

Backup your .bitcoin folder, delete it, and mount your truecrypt drive in .bitcoin
Then put all the files of your .bitcoin backup in the truecrypt drive

Or use -datadir bitcoin flag

As jackjack said, -datadir=

You might also use symlink (or if windows, see http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2730.msg306129#msg306129 )
