You can create a hidden volume within your TrueCrypt volume. I suggest reading about it in the TrueCrypt documentation first. There are some key points to remember. Firstly, if you have a hidden volume, saving new information to the host volume may damage your hidden volume. There is an option to mitigate this when mounting your standard volume (refer to documentation). Secondly, since the volume is hidden, you will not be able to find a file to mount. To mount your hidden volume, simply go through the motions to mount your standard (host) volume, and then enter the password for your hidden volume. It's that easy.Tin Foil and lulz
Whether you're a high net worth individual (which comes with a higher risk for being targeted by thieves) or just paranoid (nothing wrong with that when safeguarding your assets), you can create decoy TrueCrypt volumes and keep them in places where thieves would be likely to look. You can keep empty wallets in them in hopes that whoever is targeting you sees that they're empty (assuming they can even crack your encryption), gets discouraged and disappointed that you apparently have no coins, and gives up, or you can just keep really stupid things in them (like a shopping list, a scanned Bob Evans receipt, funny cat picture) just to fuck with them. You can keep these decoys in any number of places. Just use your imagination and have some fun with it. LOLOther Security Precautions
1. Use a VPN. I recommend using Private Internet Access. You can buy an entire year's subscription for about $30 or $40, and the monthly plan is only $6.95/month. They also accept bitcoin if you want your account to be even more private. Their technical support is very responsive, and they have an active forum with many valuable how-to posts. You can even use their desktop client AND set up open vpn using your log on credentials so that you have two layers of encryption enveloping your internet traffic. Long story short, you get a lot of bang for your buck with these guys.https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/
2. Install CryptoPrevent. CryptoPrevent is tool developed to keep your computer safe from Crypto Locker and other forms of ransomware (even the latest incarnations of Crypto Locker), and any malware really, that uses the same method of embedding itself into your system. CryptoPrevent is free, but there is a paid version that auto-updates for under $20 (one time fee for lifetime use).http://www.foolishit.com/vb6-projects/cryptoprevent/
3. Use secure file shredding instead of just emptying your recycle bin. AVG Free has a file shredding feature, as does the paid version of Spybot S&D. Alternatively, there is a free and open source program called Eraser that you can use.http://eraser.heidi.ie/
4. Use privacy enhancing add-ons for Firefox. There are a lot of them. Some that I recommend are Adblock, Adblock plus, Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon, Disconnect, Ghostery, Google Disconnect, HTTPS Finder, and HTTPS Everywhere. NoScript is good too, but it does cause issues with websites not loading the way they're meant to (not always a bad thing). Do some research on Firefox add-ons and install the ones that will work for you.
5. Install Windows Firewall Control. This is a lightweight program that simply allows you to manually tighten up your firewall rules. I heard about it on the Security Now podcast with Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte recently, and installed it.http://www.binisoft.org/
6. Lastly, be sure you do regular maintenance on your computer. Keep your antivirus software updated and run scans regularly. Use CCleaner regularly. Run Defraggler every so often. If you can afford to buy it, I recommend purchasing SpinRite, a product created by Steve Gibson. It will keep your hard drives working many many years longer than expected. Hard drives are generally thought of to only be good for a few years, but if you use SpinRite you will add years to their life. Think of it like changing your car's oil or flushing the coolant periodically. If you don't do those things, then OF COURSE your car will go to shit quickly. Hard drives (and most things, however cheaply made they might be) are no different. It's just common sense: If you take care of something it will last much, much longer. It will save you money, and, it's good for the environment because it is exponentially less wasteful.https://www.grc.com/sr/spinrite.htm
