It could permantently corrupt the truecrypt containers......also discussing cracking software is skating on the edge of the forum rules.

See if this helps:

Do you have any other backups of the trucrypt container? If not, then I think you have exhausted all your options -- the final chance was a restoring of the header information, but as you have seen that doesn't always work.

You mentioned earlier that you were on vacation in the US from Norway and I was wondering if you were using the same computer that was used to create the vaults on your external drives. I remember reading somewhere that you could experience trouble with opening vaults with another computer, especially if it was running a different operating system. Don't know if this is the case with you, but thought I would mention it.

No I am not using the PC that I used to create the truecrypt pass for the external hardrive, I'm currently using a laptop now. But this just might work I'm travelling back home again soon so I'm gonna try that then. Thanks for the info.
