Windows 7: TrueCrypt "selected device contains partitions"

13 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
TrueCrypt "selected device contains partitions"

EDIT: I solved this myself. Instead of selecting the whole HDD I just needed to select the one partition

I have a two hard-drive setup on my computer. I have the C: drive, for my operating system and programs. Then I have my F: drive, the one that contains all my files. I'm trying to encrypt my F: drive.

First, I went to "Create Volume" in TrueCrypt. Next I chose to Encrypt a non-system partition/drive. I selected Standard Volume, and at the Select Device screen I picked my 1TB Files hard drive. Once that was selected, I got this error:

I only have one partition, the main one for all my files... I'm not sure what it means. Can anyone help? Thanks!
