Windows 7: TrueCrypt volume won't dismount unless I do it Forcibly

08 Apr 2010   #11

Windows 7

I was having the same problem with dismounting a TrueCrypt volume until I enabled the Default Mount Options setting 'Mount volumes as removable media' [in TrueCrypt Preferences].

From the TrueCrypt FAQ:

What will change when I enable the option 'Mount volumes as removable media'? You can enable this option, for example, to prevent Windows from automatically creating the 'Recycled' and/or the 'System Volume Information' folders on TrueCrypt volumes (in Windows, these folders are used by the Recycle Bin and System Restore facilities). However, there are some disadvantages. For example, when you enable this option under Windows Vista or earlier, the 'Computer' (or 'My Computer') list will not show free space on the volume (note that this is a Windows limitation, not a bug in TrueCrypt).
