TrueCrypt container not synchronizing with OwnCloud

To be extra secure while syncing data with OwnCloud, I put some confidential data into a TrueCrypt container. However, the container wasn’t synchronized by OwnCloud’s Windows client after I changed the data inside the container.

I quickly found out that the problem was TrueCrypt not updating the modification date of the container (which is a nice security feature of course). OwnCloud simply didn’t realize that the container had been changed. However, there’s a configuration switch that disables this feature:

Settings -> Preferences -> Preserve modification timestamp of file containers

TrueCrypt setting: Preserve modification timestamp of file containers

After unchecking the setting OwnCloud now syncs the TrueCrypt container just fine.

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
