like the title says, I have two physical drives, C: and D;. Both are full disk encrypted with Truecrypt. I would like to format C: and install windows, I'm upgrading from windows 7 to windows 8.1 and want to start fresh.
Do I need to decrypt both drives? C: mounts automatically on boot, but the D: I mount manually after boot. Can I just format c:, then install windows normally, then reinstall Truecrypt and be able to mount D:? Do I need to copy anything from the current C: drive in order to be able to remount the D: drive? I already have everything on C: that I want to keep backed up on an external HD.
TL:DR I guess my main questions is, will formatting C: affect my access to D: after I get windows installed? I don't want to spend 3 days decrypting c: if I don't have to.
I'm asking here to double-check things before I take the plunge.
