With automatically generated junctions stored in the container file folder in the PC file system are displayed. In this state you can work as normal with the stored data, En/decryption is performed on-the-fly, the data in the container will always be encrypted. As long as an application accesses the lists of container file that TrueCrypt prevented the closure of the container, it is an indication, and the question whether the closing is to be forced, therefore accidental closure is not possible. The container file can be deactivated at any time, so that all folder invisible (junctions) are deleted, all data is securely encrypted in the container file.
