why does w7 want always format a truecrypt partition ?

hi

why does w7 want always format a truecrypt partition ?

i have an external hard disk

2 partition ntfs file system

1 was encrypted with truecrypt 32bit under w7 32bit

everytime , w7 pop up with a request to format the drive

i don't auto mount the partition , i mount the partition always when i need

so when the partition is not mounted , w7 asks me to format

it's very boring

can i avoid it?

I found this:

Quote:
What you need to do to fix it is go into your “Computer Management” >> “Disk Management” and then right click on the drive letter for your device. Select “Change Drive Letters and Paths…”. Then click on “Remove”. You will get a “Disk Management” information box that states “Some programs that rely on drive letters might not run correctly. Are you sure you want to remove this drive letter?”. Select “Yes”. This will take care of the prompt asking you to format the drive and you will not ever see it again on that particular computer.

The drive will still show up in Explorer, it just won't have a letter.

Another way is to format the partition as a Linux partition when creating the Truecrypt partition and this too will solve the problem.
