Truecrypt 3tb drive encryption

I have installed a 3tb drive as a secondary drive on my windows 7-64 bit system. It's for storage mostly but I have some personal data on there. I have been using truecrypt to encrypt my drives. So I hooked this drive up, selected GPT so I could use all 3 terabytes and truecrypt won't encrypt the entire drive. It will however encrypt the partition with nearly all the data on it and leave the Guid partition table unencrypted on a second small partition. My question is, is this good? Would leaving the Guid partition table unencrypted leave my other partition vulnerable in some way?

    Leaving the GPT unencrypted is fine. Only thing that hides is how many partitions you have on the drive, which isn't particularly important information.
