Honestly, I have no idea. :)

How about dedicated recovery tools? Download any trial version and run that.

comment Cannot mount TrueCrypt volume
You mount the partition with TrueCrypt and then Windows asks you to format the partition? One possibility here is that you are looking at corrupt file table; sometimes running chkdsk on the mounted partition helps, sometimes a more elaborate recovery tool is required.

If it were random data. I believe, data in other partitions were not random at all.

comment Finding a TrueCrypt volume on a lost partition
Actually, there should be a way to do that by exclusion, since in this particular case the rest of the disk was not encrypted. Presumably, it contained non-encrypted partitions that might be used to determine the boundaries of the one encrypted partition.

comment How can I boot Windows 7 embedded from USB 3.0?
I'd like to add (after seeing the two new answers below and yet again revisiting the links) that I am looking for information pertaining specifically to the Embedded edition of Windows 7 and (not so obvious from the question, but still implied) its USB Bootable Stack. With WES7, booting off USB is not a hack (like with regular 7), but a feature in its own right. For now, I'd like to keep it that way, hack-free, feature-based. So... Is this possible? What do I need to do?

comment How can I boot Windows 7 embedded from USB 3.0?
I'm using Image Configuration Editor (licensed from MS) for building WES7 images AND oscdimg. Because WES7 supports USB boot out of the box and has a specially designed USB stack for these purposes, I understand that the stack may not fully support USB3.0. I don't quite see how these instructions help or even provide a pointer to a possible solution. If you know of a Bootable USB stack replacement for USB3.0, that would be interesting. Next best thing, a USB3 driver to play nice with WES7's stack. Other than that, I just hope I'm missing something obvious. Like 3.0 not being supported at all.

@avirk, I'm seeing STOP 7B when booting WES7 from USB3.0, while USB2.0 boots fine. I'm not entirely sure this isn't a hardware problem, but seeing others have exactly the same (USB2, not USB3) makes me suspect Windows might be involved too.

comment Merge 70,000 RTF/DOC files into one
Andrew, you are welcome. The issue with shortening the wait time is that AutoIt (in this case) has no reliable way of knowing that the insertion has completed. A VBA script would not have this problem, of course, so I Googled out a ready-made example for you :) blogs.technet.com/b/heyscriptingguy/archive/2005/05/03/… I believe this should work at the maximum speed attainable with InsertFile. A different approach may get better performance, but I sincerely hope you do not need to merge 70k RTFs on a regular basis. :)
