Instructions for using Truecrypt for Dropbox

Could someone please provide some basic step by step instructions on how I can use Truecrypt with Dropbox.  Please assume I have never used Truecrypt before and go through the steps.  Are there are downsides to using it with dropbox also?

I use Encrypter Pro with dropbox.  It's nice because there is a phone version and a Windows version, so I can use a keyboard when I'm at my desk and then access it from my phone when I'm away.

Thanks I'll give it a try.  The files that I want to put into a truecrypt folder or lock, are not themselves password protected, but a few maybe....not sure if that answers yoru question?
David L. Hansen

I was asking about files because Encrypter Pro only works with simple text.  For me that's all I want, a couple clicks and I'm looking at my passwords...however, if you need to store encrypted files, then you'd have to do so with a separate tool (as I do).  TrueCrypt will meet the needs for both of course, I just like to get to my passwords super quick.

Hi guys

Firstly, apologies for the extended delay.  This is where I am with it.

Ok I have tried the latest versions of TC on both a mac and Windows 7, using the latest OS and TC versions for both.

I remember when I tried using TC a few years ago on my USB, I didnt have to load TC and all that.  I could have sworn I just click on the container on the USB and it asked me for a password before it opened the container.  Maybe this wasnt TC but some other software.  Do I always have to mount it and load TC before I can click on a the file container?  Its really annoying me!.
