My understanding is that each sector is encrypted individually (it's not an all-or-nothing thing), so if one of them gets corrupt, you only lose that small amount of data.

I haven't lost any data due to TrueCrypt misbehaving in the 10+ years I've been using it. Of course now having said that, I've probably just jinxed myself.
