By my calculations it should be quite full, but dd just keeps on writing. I'd wondered if seek wasn't working on the loop device and dd was just starting over from the beginning each time. Is there any easy way to see how full the device is (no filesystem on there)? - Linux-crypto: cryptography in and on the Linux system Archive: http://mail.nl.linux.org/linux-crypto/
