how to mount a .TIB (acronis true image file backup) which contains encrypted SYSTEM drive (with partiion 1(100mbsize) and 2(1tb) ) as physical drive, for mount it in True Crypt? and get some files?

I tried OSFMount for mount image (for testing purposes at first) as physidcal drive, but True Crypt dont show it in list partitions/disk after pressing "select device/partition" botton.

Shold I need make 1.1tb empty image for mount in OSFMount and afer Unpack whole drive using Acronis whole drive recovery to this empty image file? After that I need mount this image as drive and mount it in TC? But I have problem with disk drives/partitions listing in true crypt :-(

Any help?

  • Was it really encrypted with TrueCrypt? If it was you should have moved to VeraCrypt many years ago. TC is abandoned.

  • yes , with TC, Vera Crypt can see virtual drives? Also VC dont have any security audit?

    VC can do everything TC did and yes, it's open-source therefore it's audited all the time. It already contains corrections for TC's vulnerabilities discovered after it has been abandoned. Insisting in using TC is just dumb.

1) Restore your TIB image to a spare physical drive.

2) TrueCrypt should now be able to recognize and access the encrypted system partition with no difficulty.

  • I dont have empty drive for this purpose, maybe use virtual machine for this?

  • You can try that and see if it works. Dec 16, 2019 at 16:45

Resolved it using virtual machine, unpacking TIB backup in freshly created virtual disk, after select it in TC

  • Good to know this worked without needing a spare physical disk. Thanks for posting the solution. Dec 17, 2019 at 2:37
