Solved can I backup a single data file inside an encrypted folder

Specs: Windows 7
If I encrypt the folder of a software accounting program on my hard drive using windows 7 pro 64 bit, can I backup only my data file to an external flash drive? If so, what steps would be necessary to restore that file in the accounting program?

A flash drive is a pretty poor choice.

I'd be more inclined to have a usb hard drive and store the file without encryption but store the usb drive in a secure location.
