I just bought a WD Elements 3 TB hard disk and wanted to encrypt the entire thing with Truecrypt (7.1a - Mac), using AES-Twofish-Serpent, Whirlpool as Hash Algorithm and Mac OS Extended as the filesystem of choice. I worked my way through the "Volume Creation Wizard" without any problems, but every time I click on the final "Format"-Button the following error shows up:
Error: The drive uses a sector size other than 512 bytes.
Now, I don't really want to create a volume, as suggested, but instead encrypt the whole disk. Did anyone have similar problems to that and can offer a solution? Would be great! Thanks!
BTW.: I found this blog post of a guy who made changes to the Truecrypt source and encrypted his disk successfully afterwards. Well, I'm not really comfortable with using his version...
