    How secure are sparsebundles? I'm especially interested in a comparison with truecrypt, when plausible deniability is not an issue. I couldn't find solid information about sparsebundles vs truecrypt on the net.

    Captain obvious to the rescue. :p

    So, no known attacks besides brute force / dictionary? Then I'll settle with a sparsebundle, comfort wins.

    It has nothing to do with what kind of file is encrypted; it has everything to do with how it is encrypted and if the implementation is correct.
