How do I disable "you need to format this disk" message in Windows Vista/7?
I have a USB drive. The entire device is encrypted with TrueCrypt. When I plug in the drive, Windows 7, understandably, doesn't realize the drive has a file system. So Windows always offers "You need to format the disk in drive G: before you can use it. Do you want to format it?" I dismiss this dialog, and mount the drive with TrueCrypt and everything is fine.
The problem is, a. that dialog is annoying and b. I'm concerned that one of these days I'm going to accidentally hit the Format button and blow away my encrypted drive.
Is there a way to tell Windows 7 to NEVER offer to format a drive it does not recognize?
