Hi,

It could be - set the password on the laptop to the same as the external drives, and see what happens.

Ok I have started the decryption process now, I will get back to you once I have finished the next next encryption process and tested to see if I can open the the other two drives.

Encrypt done I'm still not able to access the drives. Damn there has to be another way. I've had these files for so long damn I cant lose them.

I'm using testdisk now to look for any lost partitions. One think that also came to mind if I format the 2 drives might I be able then to recover the files with Stellar Phoeni Data Recovery Professional.

Have you checked the keyboard layout to make sure that it hasn't been set to something different from what it was when you set the passwords? For example, the English US and UK versions have slight variations whereby certain characters are in different positions (e.g. Shift 2 on UK yields " whereas the same key press on US gives @).

Nope still getting incorrect password. I just don't get it how this can happen with 2 hard-drives.

Hi,

I'm not really sure what else can be done - TrueCrypt doesn't have a 'backdoor'. The only way to decrypt is by using the keypass that was used to encrypt the files

Why dident I make a backup before this happened of all the things that could happen. I had so many important files on there my best chance will probably be to run Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery - Professional

I'm currently running Data Recovery Utility to see if I can find any lost partitions.

Thanks for all the help guys I would never have mostly thought about all the suggestions.

I would try all possible passwords you have used previously, just in case....
