I installed windows 7 and it destroyed my truecrypt volume.
I have the following setup:
/dev/sda <-- truecrypt encrypted drive /dev/sda1 <-- 100mb, probably windows boot loader (new, should not be here) /dev/sdb1 <-- ubuntu /dev/sdb2 <-- swap /dev/sdb3 <-- windows 7 (new)
The bootloader of windows 7 seems to automatically install itself at sda1, not on the partition windows is beeing installed on.
I was able to restore the volume header of the truecrypt drive by using volume tools -> restore volume header -> restore the volume header from the backup embedded in the volume
If I now try to mount the truecrypt volume at /dev/sda I get the following error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mapper/truecrypt3, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I started truecrypt over command line, but there is no concrete error message.
syslog - try dmesg | tail gives me:
No command 'syslog' found, did you mean: Command 'dsyslog' from package 'dsyslog' (universe) Command 'syslogd' from package 'sysklogd' (universe) Command 'syslogd' from package 'inetutils-syslogd' (universe) Command 'syslogd' from package 'busybox-syslogd' (universe) syslog: command not found
I already tried to google my problem but could not find a solution so far (and I am a little afraid of just trying stuff, because it would be a shame to loose all the data). Does anyone know a way to fix this? I would really appreciate any help.
dmesg | tail gives me:
[ 2848.396620] EXT3-fs (dm-3): error: invalid journal inode [ 2976.790464] EXT3-fs (dm-1): error: invalid journal inode [ 3890.357971] EXT3-fs (dm-1): error: invalid journal inode
