comment Can random data from a wipe or encryption of a full drive result in fake partitions appearing in the MBR?
Since that is clearly not the intention it could only be because of buggy s/w. Maybe best post to the TrueCrypt support forum? (forums.truecrypt.org) I can only say that I have used TC for years in the manner which you describe and have never once seen a new partition appearing ... sounds curios, best ask the TC guys

comment Is there any online web application for daily activity logs
are you sure that you don't want a blog (locally on your PC, rather than on the web)? Or is that too heavy-duty for you?

comment What happened to my recovery partition after upgrading to Windows 8?
ok, the recovery parition is the one before C, the 7.37gB. If you can't format M:, use partition-tool.com to delete it, and expand C: to fill the space. Sicne M: has a drive letter, what happens when you try to open it, or do a dir m: ?

comment Using OEM disks to install Windows 7 partition on Windows 8 laptop
I had thought (hoped) that they had stopped doing that - wiping the entire disk. It has been a long time since I saw it. Can you try on another PC and see what it does? If it does, then what about the Windows 8 install? Does that format the entire drive? If not, back up up your data, install 7 (formtatting the entire drive), create a new parition and install 8 to that. Or just buy a second PC? If you want to develop for the touchscreen aspects of 8 you will porbably have to buy a new device anyway in order to test.

comment Dropbox modification of file in 2 different places at once
Mayeb its' best not to do that? Or, if you must, then copy to USB thumb drive before leaving the office, and copy onto laptop before making any changes. DropBox will later resynch the dsktop when you have connected the laptop (if you don't connect, then it's back to the USB stick)

comment What is the advantage of having same size RAM of 1 Dimm instead of 2 Dimm
No technical advantage. Larger chips cost more to manufacture, so they sell for more. The advantage is that you have a limited number of slots and if you want to expand later, it might be best to buy the larger. E.G, imagine only 2 slots and you choose 2 @4gB, then later want to expand, so must throw away 2@ 4gB, but if you had bought one @ 8gB ...

comment What happened to my recovery partition after upgrading to Windows 8?
If you can wait, why not contact tech suport at the PC manufacturer and ask them? the drive letter sounds strange (normally recovery prtitions don't have adroive letetr, but you might have added one somehow). Tech support ought to be able to tell you the size of the recovery parition; if this is differnt, then I say delete it. In my experience, the recovery parition is always the first on the disk, before drive C:. What about this one?

comment Wifi Adapter not working in windows 8
Can it connect to other networks? Does your campus require you to register the machine? (it may be filtering on MAC address). You could try updating the driver, either by Windows update or something like DriverMax. Just be sure to create a restore point first.

comment TrueCrypt drive letter not available
Sorry, @Tono, I cannot help you :-( I compared your mount commands for volumes W and Z and they truly only differ by that one letter. I also tried executing them on my PC and both worked. I can only sugegst that somehow volume W is in use, even though it looks free. Did you try dir w: what about other system utilities, such as easeus partition master? What does that show with erspect to drive W:? I am intruiged. If you find the naswer, please post it.
