I am considering installing FDE on my laptop, but one thing that is making me hesitant is the fear that it could become corrupt, and then I'd lose EVERYTHING?! (People always tell me "Don't worry", but over my lifetime, it seems like technical things always end up breaking in my life?!)

If I was running FDE on my laptop, is there a way I could periodically do an "Unencrypted Backup" to another disk? (That way if my main drive went haywire, I would at least has a "normal" version of things?!)

Hope that makes sense?!
