Windows 7: TrueCrypt: I see the "Outer" volume, but where is the "Hidden" volume?

TrueCrypt: I see the "Outer" volume, but where is the "Hidden" volume?

I think I've successfully installed truecrypt on my back up media HDD. I chose the option to make an Outer volume & also a Hidden volume.

Apparently both were created successfully, but I can't seem to locate the Hidden volume to add files to it? I've entered both passwords correctly & I can see the main Outer volume when the disk is mounted, but I don't see where the hidden volume is or how to create a new folder within the hidden volume?

Don't mount the outer volume. Enter your password for the inner volume only.

Great, that worked thank you.

Every time I plug the back up HDD in windows prompts me to format it.... obviously I'll cancel it every time, but is there a way to turn off the format prompt for this HDD?

I haven't experienced this. It could be a drive letter issue. I remember seeing something about this in the faq. Basically, you remove the drive letter inside disk management, then Windows 7 ignores it.
