tl;dr -- How do you mount a secondary hard disk with multiple volumes that was encrypted with "full disk encryption" by TrueCrypt?
My secondary 1TB hard disk has 4 volumes on it, an old Windows 7 standard desktop installation. When it was new I encrypted it entirely (all 1TB in one "fully encrypt system drive" operation using TrueCrypt 7.1). So when I used to have it as my main bootable system disk I would get the TrueCrypt password prompt immediately at bootup and that would enable the system to access the Windows installation.
Now I'm booting off an SSD drive with a fresh Windows 7 installation on it.
I have hit a problem I didn't foresee when I upgraded to the new SSD. It would seem that I cannot persuade VeraCrypt or Truecrypt to mount the old drive.
The new system can see the 4 volumes on the encrypted disk, but I cannot work out how to mount any of them.
While the old drive is theoretically bootable, I do not want to mount that disk in anything other than read-only mode if possible.
- There are no hidden volumes on the encrypted disk.
- The encrypted disk is in good health and has no corruption, it was booted successfully recently and shutdown cleanly.
