I have been using Ghost 15 without problem to back up two computers (Win 7 64 bit) to my Network Attached Storage (NAS). I recently created a 2GB partition on one computer for sensitive data and used TrueCrypt to encrypt it. TrueCrypt assigned a drive letter to the partition.
I now want to backup one folder on the encrytped partion to the NAS. My plan was to define a folder backup. My expectation was that TrueCrypt will do on-the-fly unencryption when Ghost is backing up the folder, and the data will be saved as an unencrypted backup on the NAS. Ghost does not see the encrypted partion, but it does sees the path to the encrypted folder when I browse to it. However, I get an error message either when the wizard reaches the last page and I click "Finish," or when I try to run the backp. I've tried this several times with varying options, and sometimes I get different error messages. The most recent one (doing the folder backup) occurred when I tried to run the backup. The message was "Ghost error with S: drive, Snapshot Error 1%, Error EBA03F1, OS error 2147754767." I have no idea what these mean and don't know where to go to find out.
Can anyone help me with this?

I'm not sure why it doesn't work. But as a test since the encrypted partition is only 2GB, can you see if Ghost can image the partition?
Try mounting the partition in TrueCrypt and then doing a "one time backup" of it to create an image rather than a file and folder backup.
I know TrueCrypt partitions can be imaged that way, see if it works for you or you get the same error.
The image by default will be unencrypted but Ghost can not only password protect the image but it can encrypt it as well.
