yes. Command is issued as sudo, and no output is given (fails silently?)

I will try posing the question to TrueCrypt and see if anyone has seen
this before. In the mean time, I will do a test backup on a small
hdiutil partition to see if it works. I will surely document my work.

In terms of scripts, I was going to cron a backup every 2 hours
assuming that the backup directory is in place- if not, it would fail
silently. Additionally, automator can run the backup script when the
volume is successfully mounted using truecrypt. I do not think these
are highly technical things, but I will put the scripts up anyway.
