I encrypted a 800GB partition on my 1TB hard drive. The process completed successfully. But, now when I mount the drive it asks me to format it. I cannot open it. I have 600GB of data and I am not able to find it. Does anyone have any ideas as to why I can't access the data on the encrypted partition of my hard drive?
Finally got it back. I used GetBackData for that. You can do it with any data recovery software for that matter. You just have to mount the volume in TrueCrypt, run recovery on the mounted drive not the original volume.
Eg. : If you have encrypted Partition G: and mounted it on K: then run recovery on K: not on G:
Hope it helps
