Windows 7: TrueCrypt password error!!!

[SOLVED] TrueCrypt password error!!!

Hi,

I created a "Encrypted File Container" with AES, NTFS and 4.3GB. When I click "Mount" button and type password the volume is mounted. But, if I click "Auto-mount Devices" button and type password the error message appears. The password is the same (and is the right password). I guess it is a bug!

See:

"Mount" button: volume is mounted!

"Auto-mount Devices" button: error: "Incorrect password or no TrueCrypt volume found".

Name:  auto-mout.png

Size:  68.6 KB

I did the backup of header of my volume and I restored it, but didn't work!

If I configure TrueCrypt to initialize at logon and auto-mount my volumes thesame error appears. This function is very important to me. I need this function.

I can't access the TrueCrypt Forum because he don't allow e-mails of free providers (Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, AOL, because of spam).

Does your password contain characters that can move between different keyboard layouts? For example, " and @ with en-US and en-UK.

No, only letters and numbers with characters used in all layouts.

Letters from A to Z.
Numbers from 0 to 9.

Without special characters.

When you create an "Encrypted File Container" you are creating an encrypted file within an existing file name. "Auto-mount Devices" is used to mount a device(drive) or partition and not a file. I think you need to select to encrypt a partition or drive to achieve what you want. Try creating a partition that is the size you want(4.3Gb) in your fdisk manager and then select "create volume" in Truecrypt and opt for "Encrypt a non-system partition/drive" follow the destructions and you should be good. If you need help in auto-mounting try searching at the website (available from the right hand side menu.) Hope this helps
